Moodle Sharing Cart
Posted by Bonnie Tensen on 09 February 2016 10:43 AM

The Sharing Cart is a block for duplicating course items into a personal library and an easy way to move those Moodle resources and activities between multiple courses on your site. 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. 

  1. In your course, turn editing on and scroll down to the "Add a Block" block (in the left margin). [NOTE: You must add the Sharing Cart block to EACH course where you want to share resources and activities.]

    scroll to Add a block

  2. From the dropdown menu, select "Sharing Cart." [NOTE: the block will automatically be added--you do not need to "Save" or "Update."]

    Scroll to Add a Block

  3. Once you have added the Sharing Cart block to a course, when you have "editing" turned ON every Moodle resource or activity in that course has a "blue basket" icon to the left of the Edit dropdown menu. Click on that option to save a copy of that resource/activity in the Sharing Cart.

  4. When you select an item to copy to the sharing cart, a pop-up confirming your selection will appear. Click "Confirm." [NOTE: You may be asked if you want to copy "user data." Almost always your answer should be "No."]

  5. The item will now appear in the Sharing Cart. To copy the item into another course, go into that course, add the Sharing Cart from the "Add a Block" block, and then click then click the download icon next to the item. [Remember that you must add the Sharing Cart to that course AND have "Editing" on!]

  6. In the bottom of every topic section of your course, a "dotted line rectangle" will appear. Select where in the course you want to add the item, and click the arrow in the center of that box to add.

    select where to add

  7. You can delete individual items from your cart, do a bulk delete, or remove the sharing cart from your course.
