How do I use Direct Share to send an announcement to another instructor?
As an instructor, you can use Direct Share to share individual announcements in your course with other instructors at your institution. You can also use Direct Share to copy an individual announcement into another course.
When you share a announcement, any assets within that announcement (images, files, etc.) will be included in the shared file. Announcement settings, including delay posting dates, are also included in the announcement copy.
- 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.
