How do I share or copy content?
Direct share enables you to copy individual course items with another course as well as send individual course items to another canvas user.
In Assignments, Quizzes, Discussions, and Pages, instructors can copy content to another course and share individual content items with another user. You are also able to share a module.
The Copy To option is used to copy content to another one of your courses.
To copy content, locate the course where the content should be copied by typing at least the first three letters of a course name in the search field. Search results display courses by name. Select the name of the course when it appears.
The content can be placed within a specific module in the course, if applicable. This menu is optional.
Users can search for other users via email address. Content can only be sent to other teachers in canvas. Users can be identified by typing at least the first three letters of a user’s name in the search field. Search results display users by name and email address. Select the name of the user when it appears.
Any user who receives shared content from another user is notified about the content In the User Navigation Menu. Shared content is indicated in the user’s Account icon and also in the Shared Content link.
