Note: If there is a rubric attached to the assignment, it will be shared to Commons as part of the assignment. The attached rubric will also be imported as part of the assignment.

Note: Typically, I recommend Creative Commons Attribution NonCommercial license. A Non-Commercial license adds the caveat that others can use your course content, but not for commercial purposes. If you select this option, you can add use specifications.

Select your content license from the Copyright and Licenses drop-down menu. Learn more about content license options.

 

Step 6: Choose A Sharing Option

 

Note: Select a sharing option. Learn more about sharing options.
