Course Management: Importing Content to Another Course

Importing Content to Another Course
Note that the first half of this video details the process of creating a dummy class on a test server. Drag the timer to the half way point and begin watching when the "Import101" class page appears.

This feature allows you to take content from one course you are teaching and import it into another course on the same system. It also works to copy content from courses you taught in previous semester. Make sure this new course has the same Settings as the course you are copying from, otherwise some resources and assignments will show up in odd places. (IE: If the course you are copying from is arranged weekly make sure to change your current course from Topic outline to weekly)

Go to the class you wish to copy to. On the Administration block click the "Import" link. On the "Courses I Have Taught" drop-down menu select the course you wish to copy from and click the "Use This Course" button. You are taken to a page where you can select which resources and assignments you wish to import. The list defaults to "All". Click the "Continue" button and you will see a list of everything to be imported to your current course. Click the "Continue" button and you will see a page showing you everything that has been imported to your current course. Click the "Continue" button and one more process will run. Click the "Continue" button one more time and you will see the main page of your current course, which will look identical to the course you imported from.
