How do I add assignments to a course template in the assessment library?

How do I add assignments to a course template in the assessment library?

After you have created a course template, you can add assignments to the template. Adding assignments to a course template helps ensure a consistent experience for students if multiple instructors are teaching the course. Adding assignments to a course template also allows instructors to use the same content for multiple terms without having to clone or recreate the assignments.

After claiming a course, instructors may add assignments to their courses. However, assignments added at the course level will not be available in subsequent claimed courses unless the assignment is added to the template.

Note: You can add up to 30 assignments to a course template or course assessment.
