After you assign an activity pack to your students, students can log into their Quill accounts to access and complete activities. Teachers can also share a direct link to a specific activity or activity pack with their students.
Sharing an Individual Activity with Students
Sharing a specific activity with students allows students to go directly to the activity in question. You are only able to share the activity link with students who have been assigned this activity.
To share a link for an individual activity:
Click your "My Activities" tab
Scroll to find the individual activity in question
Click the arrow next to the specific activity
Clicking "Copy link" allows you to paste the direct link to the activity anywhere you wish, such as your class page in a learning platform or via email. Once students click the link, they will be prompted to sign into their Quill accounts to begin the activity as students cannot complete a Quill activity without logging into their Quill accounts.
Sharing an Activity Pack with Students
Sharing an activity pack with students will bring them directly to the activity pack in their To-do Activities page in their Quill account. To share a link for an activity pack, instead of a specific activity:
Click your "My Activities" tab
Scroll to find the activity pack in question
Click the arrow next to "Share activity pack" at the top of the box
Clicking "Copy link" allows you to paste the direct link to the activity pack anywhere you wish, such as your class page in a learning platform or via email. Once students click the link, they will be prompted to sign into their Quill accounts to access the activity pack as students cannot complete a Quill activity without logging into their Quill accounts.
Sharing an Activity to Activity Pack to Google Classroom
When you click the arrow to share either an activity or activity pack, the pop-up menu will pear. Click the "Share to Google Classroom" button.
Select the class for whom would like to post the activity.
**Note: Please that the assignment you are linking is assigned to the Google Classroom section you select. For example, if you are sharing an activity that is assigned to your 1st Period Quill class, select your 1st Period Google Classroom section.**
Select the method with which you would like share this activity. You can share the activity by:
Creating an assignment
Asking a question
Making an announcement
Click the "Go" button.
Quill will automatically fill in the title, description, and link for the activity. Fill in the information on the right side of the screen, then click the "Assign" button at the top of the page.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Will Quill activities automatically post to Google Classroom?
No, you will need to manually share the activities or activity packs using the methods above.
What is the difference between sharing an activity link and an activity pack link?
Sharing a link to a specific activity will take students directly into that activity, and they can immediately begin working on the assignment. Sharing a link to an activity pack will take students to the activity pack on their dashboard. Although it will not take students directly into an activity, it will highlight the activity pack you shared, as noted in the screenshot below.
Will the Quill activity grade automatically sync to Google Classroom?
No, the activity grade on Quill will not be automatically synced to Google Classroom.
Can I share activity packs with another teacher using this method?
This process is for sharing activities and activity packs with students. Sharing the link with another teacher will not work.
