How do I enter assignments for 2 classes at once?
Hello Evelyn Robinson...
Thank you for the extra details. To my knowledge, there is no way to create one assignment in two separate courses at the same time. An alternative to using Commons is to use the Course Import Tool. First, create your assignment in Course A. Then, go to Course B and use the Course Import Tool to select specific content from Course A. Check out this Guide: How do I select specific content as part of a course import?
That being said, there is one benefit I can see of first sharing your assignment to Canvas Commons. Let's say that you have a "master" course shell (different than Course A and Course B) where you've built some content for a course. You share that content from your "master" course to Commons. Then, you import that shared content from Commons to Course A and Course B. Later on in the semester, you realize that you need to make a correction to that content. Rather than updating both Course A and Course B separately, you only update the "master" course. Then, you push out the update to Course A and Course B. Essentially it is an "update once, distribute to many" concept.
I hope these resources will be of help to you, Evelyn. Let us know if you have any questions...thanks!
Hello Evelyn Robinson Welcome to the Canvas Community. Thank you for posting your question. Can you explain what you mean by the word "enter"? Are you asking how to create a new assignment in two courses at the same time? Are you asking how to enter grades for students for two courses at the same time? More details from you will help us know how to properly answer your question. Thanks, and looking forward to hearing back from you soon!
I mean creating an assignment in two courses at one time. I know how to
copy modules, but I added Assignments and URl links in one of the classes
and I need them in the other. Without using commons, is there a way to do
this? It is a lot of assignments. Is there a way to create in both classes
at the same time? I will be doing the same thing next semester with a

Thanks, that helped. I had actually used the Import Tool. Not sure exactly
what I did, (somethings didn't copy) but everything I needed did copy. I
will use the Master course for the next modules.
