How do I copy content from another course using the Course Import tool?


You can copy course content such as assignments, modules, pages, and discussions from previous courses into existing courses. You only have access to copy content from courses in which you are enrolled as a user with instructor permissions.

This option allows you to copy content into existing courses. You may be able to copy content into a new course shell.

Open Settings

Import Content into Course

In the Content Type drop-down menu, select the Copy a Course option.
In the Search For a Course drop-down menu [1], select the course you would like to access. Courses are ordered alphabetically by most recent term. 
To search for a course by name, enter the name in the Course Name field [2]. Click the name of the course when it appears. You can also choose to include completed courses by selecting the completed courses checkbox.

Note: If you have access to more than 100 courses, the search page only displays the Course Name field.

To import all content from the course, select the All Content Radio button [3].

If you want to select specific content, click the Select Specific Content Radio button [4].

Note: If you select the specific content option, you are required to select the content you want to import after you review the remaining page options. After you start importing the content, the import selection cannot be canceled.
