Allowing another instructor to use your VoiceThread(s)

An instructor may want to use a VoiceThread in their course that another instructor has created or had used in a previous semester. The original creator of the VoiceThread must first share the VoiceThread with the new instructor. Then the new instructor can make a copy of the VoiceThread to share with the students in their Canvas course site.

Creator of the VoiceThread task

  1.  Share the VT with the new instructor with Edit access.
