How do I use Direct Share to send a quiz to another instructor in New Quizzes?

As an instructor, you can use Direct Share to share individual quizzes in your course with other instructors at your institution. You can also use Direct Share to copy an individual quiz into another course. When you share a new quiz, any assets within that quiz (images, files, etc.) will be included in the shared file.

Notes:  

  • Direct Share requires the Direct Share feature option, which can be enabled for an entire account.
  • To share course content, you must have the Course Content - add / edit / delete permission enabled.
