As an instructor, you can use Direct Share to share individual discussions in your course with other instructors at your institution. You can also use Direct Share to copy an individual discussion into another course. When you share a discussion, any assets within that discussion (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.
  • Shared content does not count against course or user quotas.
