Publish Anywhere exports support the following types of Buzz activities.

Activities set to be hidden from students are not exported with Publish Anywhere.

Buzz's Visibility and access settings allow teachers to make activities visible only to specific audiences (Students, teachers and observers (default setting), Teachers and observers, or Teachers only.

Unfortunately, the IMS Common Cartridge (IMSCC) standard doesn't allow for us to flag activities as being hidden from a student, so, to reduce the security risk of exposing this information, we have opted to not export hidden activities.

If an activity should be included in the IMSCC package, it should be made visible to the student prior to exporting the IMSCC package.

Activity links are disabled with Publish Anywhere.

Buzz allows you to create links in an activity that take the student to an activity in the same course. These links are displayed in Publish Anywhere courses, but no longer link to anything when clicked.

Activity Type
Description
Assessment
Assessments are gradable, question-based activities. Students are required to complete assessments according to conditions set by the course author and submit all answers at once.
Assignment
Assignments are gradable activities that you create using a rich text editor. Students complete assignment activities in their own time and are expected to indicate completion according to conditions set by the course author (e.g., attach a file to a dropbox, enter findings in a text box). Assignments can also be set up to accompany non-digital submissions.

Custom Activities allow you to embed SCORM activities, display external web sites, or create gradable activities using styles and scripts that aren't available with Buzz authoring tools. Because it provides greater customization options, these are best suited for advanced users.
