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.
  • If the Attendance tool was used in the source course and you are planning to use it again in the destination course, the Attendance tool must first be configured in the destination course: Control Panel->Course Tools->Attendance->Add. If this step is skipped, the meeting dates listed in the Attendance Dashboard of the source course will copy over.

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

Step 1. Go to the existing course that contains all of the content to be copied from.

Step 2. Go to Control Panel on the bottom left-hand corner of the course.

Step 3. Click on Packages and Utilities then click on Course Copy.


Under the Packages and Utilities dropdown, Course Copy is highlighted
