Dear Teachers,

 

[Insert a customized greeting for your faculty and staff]. 

 

Canvas has a great (new) feature that can make is much easier to share your content with your colleagues.  It's called DIRECT SHARE.

 

You can directly share assignments, discussions, quizzes, and content pages with a colleague AND you can also send those same items to a different course that you teach... DIRECTLY (not using the course Import tool).  Take a minute to look at the links attached to see how to share assignments.  Follow the same process to share discussions, quizzes, and content pages!

 

It's a much easier than the Canvas Commons (even though that is still pretty helpful to share Modules and Courses with each other), especially if you want to send something quickly to your PLC or just copy a great resource from one course to another!

 

Hopefully that tip can help you feel more confident and powerful on Canvas!

Hi aamundson@instructure.com this trick is the bees knees. Thanks for letting us all know. 

Surveyor

Does Direct Share have the capability to share with a single student who may have Accommodations? Or is their something similar that would work?

She was the 2016 Teacher of the Year (Cottonwood High School, Salt Lake City, Utah). On her weekends, Alissa's hobbies include reading and playing the harp (Principal Harpist, Johnson City Symphony Orchestra). Alissa's other half is an aspiring attorney about to begin his 3rd (and final!) year at Lincoln Memorial University's Duncan School of Law. They both enjoy a good Saturday of College Football and maybe someday they'll have a garden!
