Using the Sharing Cart Block in Moodle

What is the Sharing Cart?

The Sharing Cart is a block for duplicating course items into a personal library. This creates an easy way to move those Moodle resources and activities between multiple courses in Moodle. With just three clicks, the Sharing Cart copies and moves a single course item from one course to another. It copies without user data–similar to the “Import” function in Course Administration.

Adding the Sharing Cart Block

From within your course in Moodle, Turn editing on. Look for the Add a Block menu block in the left column of the page. Click the drop down arrow next to Add… Click on Sharing Cart (Note: If a block is “missing” from the list, check your course, it may already be there). The screen refreshes and the block will be added to the left column on the page.
