Put Image Groups into Shared Course Folder

Copy image groups saved into your own work folder into a shared folder.

Open the image group that you would like to copy into the shared folder. Expand the "Organize" menu and choose "Save image group as..." 

Select the shared folder that you have created (make sure the name is highlighted as shown), give your image group a name, and save it.

You can also make image groups and save them directly into the shared folder, although we recommend that you save all groups in your own work folder and make copies for the shared folder.
