As an instructor, you can use Direct Share to copy individual pages in one course directly into another course in which you are enrolled. Direct Share also allows you to send pages to other instructors at your institution. When you copy a page, any assets within that page (images, files, etc.) will be included in your page copy.

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.
