Creating course-wide snippets

Course-wide snippets are linked to a course and shared by all graders in that course, only available in a specific course.

Course-wide snippets are available for a specific course and are automatically available to all graders in all assignments of that course.

Next to making grading more efficient for you and your graders, creating course-wide snippets forces you to think about common and expected errors and mistakes during your assignments, which is always a good practice.

Create new snippets in your course by following these steps:

  1. Choose any course and click on the Settings button present on the bottom of the screen.

  2. Go to the Snippets tab and click on the New snippet button (+ symbol).

  3. Enter a name and the replacement text for the snippet in the respective input fields, and press Save. This snippet can now be used anywhere throughout this particular course.

Personal snippets and course-wide snippets can have the same keywords, these can then be used and selected next to each other.
