How do I send a module item to another instructor?
As an instructor, you can send a module item in your course to other instructors at your institution. You can also copy a module item into another course as well as send an entire course module to other instructors.
When you share a module item, any assets within that module item (images, files, etc.) will be included in the shared file. Module item settings are also included in the shared module item.
The following module item types can be sent to another instructor: assignments, quizzes, pages, and discussions. Other module item types cannot be sent individually. However, if an entire module is sent to another instructor, all module item types in the module will be included.
- 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.
- You can use the Send to feature to send course content to yourself.
In Course Navigation, click the Modules link.
