Share Folder with Colleague & Share Coursepack with Colleagues

In the 'Other Coursepack Actions' and 'Other Folder Actions' drop down menus, there are the options to 'Share Coursepack with Colleagues' or 'Share Folder with Colleague'. Non-HBP materials are not included when a coursepack/folder is shared.


If you select this option, you will be given a pop up window into which you may enter the desired recipient's email address and, optionally, a personal message, and then click 'Send' to initiate the email.


After clicking 'Send' for a Folder you will be notified 'These colleagues have been sent an email about the materials.' and need to click 'Ok' to proceed. There is no on screen notification after clicking the 'Send' button for a coursepack. The person to whose email address you entered will receive an email from with the Subject 'Collection Details (course/folder name)' and the message body:

When the recipient follows the link in Step Two (after registering and logging in), the coursepack/folder will be automatically imported into their account and available for their immediate access.


While this functionality is intended for Educator Premium type accounts to share coursepacks, an Edu Prem account can share a coursepack with a Materials Admin type account. The coursepack will be coverted into a folder during the sharing process, but once the folder is in the Materials Admin's account, they can then convert it into a coursepack.
