The Sharing Cart is a block inside AsULearn for duplicating course items (activities and resources) and then moving them between multiple courses on the same AsULearn server. With only a few clicks, the Sharing Cart copies and moves a single course item from one course, through the cart, and into another. See video below.

NOTE: The sharing cart will NOT move resources between different AsULearn sites.
