    Question Banks. If you create a bank of questions in a sandbox course and bookmark those banks, then you can use them in any course. But you cannot then copy those quizzes to any other course because the links to question banks are lost.  In order to use question banks in various courses, you have to copy the question banks from course to course along with the quizzes.  If you later want to update questions, you will have to update them in EVERY course that uses that bank.  This defeats the whole purpose of having BANKS.


    There should be a central repository for banks.  OR when quizzes are copies among courses, the links to banks should be carefully checked to maintain links to the correct banks.

    Hello Team,


    As we continue to explore the item bank feature set for the Canvas Studio: Modern Quizzing Engine , we will look into how we can best accommodate this idea.  Thank you for the idea!  We intend to entirely overhaul item banks for the better.


    Kind regards,
