In light of prior requests for this, and new demands of music teachers under COVID19, I think it is IMPERATIVE that the online SmartMusic offer the functionality of sharing units between teachers for this Fall.

Our district has required our PLC to generate shared lesson plans in anticipation of a blended learning plan (some online, and some in person) as well as to prepare for another shutdown. Being able to have teachers in my district create units of assignments templates that can be shared across the district is essential.

    Yes, I agree. I can share individual uploaded pieces by sending an email link or posting a public link but am not able to do this for units. Can smartmusic  make it possible to share units in the same manner? This would be very helpful.

    Yes! It's a ridiculous (onerous!) amount of work to post one assignment template to one class (from uploading an XML file to making the assignment).

    For I and my colleagues to share files, we have to duplicate the entire upload and assign process. We make 10-12 assignments per week for ca. 12 weeks / semester, mostly with original aural skills assignments. (No wonder it's easier to have one educator's account for multiple people teaching the same course .... it saves so much time as well as money.)

    The new sharing feature is nice -- but shared files cannot be assigned. So teachers still can't share assignments.
