How do I send a module to another instructor?

As an instructor, you can send modules in your course to other instructors at your institution. You can also copy a module into another course as well as send individual module items to other instructors.

When you share a module, any assets within that module (images, files, etc.) will be included in the shared file. Module settings are also included in the shared module.

Notes:

  • To share course content, you must have the Course Content - add / edit / delete permission enabled.
  • Shared content does not count against course or user quotas.
