How do I send an assignment to another instructor?

As an instructor, you can share individual assignments in your course with other instructors at your institution. You can also copy an individual assignment into another course. When you share an assignment, any assets within that assignment (images, files, etc.) will be included in the shared file.

Notes:  

  • 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.
