Copy Course Content (Faculty)


  • Performing a course copy will be an addition or addendum to any existing materials in a course; it will not over-write any materials in the course.
  • The person attempting the course copy must be enrolled in both courses as an instructor.

Copy content material from an existing course into a new course:

  1. Go to the existing course that contains all of the content to be copied from.
  2. Go to Control Panel on the bottom left-hand corner of the course.
  3. Click on Packages and Utilities then click on Course Copy.

Under the Packages and Utilities dropdown, Course Copy is highlighted

  1. Select Copy Type

  • Copy Course Materials into a New Course will automatically be selected. If the destination course already exists, click on the drop down and select that option. A Browse button will be offered to find the course to copy into.

  1. Select Copy Options

  • Destination Course ID (CRN) will be the course that the existing content will be copied into. Click on the Browse button and select the appropriate course.
