Copying from a Course

The copy components utility lets you copy quizzes, content, grade items, discussion forums, dropbox folders, and nearly every other type of component from another course. To copy components between courses, you must be enrolled in both courses. If you are not enrolled in one course, contact the CTE for assistance in copying a course (after receiving permission to copy course components).

  1. Go to the Import/Export/Copy page for your course. It can be found in your Course Home under Course Administration or under Edit Course.

  5. If you chose Copy All Components, skip to step . If you chose Select Components, a page called Copy Course Components appears that lists the components available to copy. Select the components you want to copy using the check box next to each component. To copy only certain items from a component, choose Select individual items to copy. This allows you to select individual quizzes, discussion forums, dropbox folders, etc.

    When you are finished selecting components, click Continue.
  6. If you chose “Select individual items to copy” for any component in the previous step, the Select Items page appears. This page lists all of the items and any sub-items contained in the current component. (For example, on the Select Dropbox Items page, you will see all of the dropbox folders and categories.). After confirming each component, click Continue to proceed to the Confirm Components to Copy page. Click Finish to begin copying.

    Clicking on the error message opens a page which details the type of error. If you encounter an error that cannot be solved, contact the CTE for assistance.
