Instructors may reuse course content, grade settings, and assessments from a previous course by copying those materials to a new class. 

For copying accurate attendance registers each term, follow the bottom set of directions in this article. 

Directions


1.  Open the course that you wish to copy to (start at the destination).

2.  Click Edit Course.

3.  On this Course Administration screen, locate and click on Import / Export / Copy Components.

4.  When asked “What would you like to do?" on the Import/Export/Copy Components screen, keep the first selection marked Copy Components from Another Course or Template. Keep checked "Include protected resources.

5.  Click Search for offering.

6.  In the window that opens, select which course offering from the past that you want to copy from and click Add Selected.
7.  Scroll down the page Choose Copy All Components (recommended) or Select Components.

  • The copy all components option is highly recommended in most situations. 
  • The select components option gives you more control over which specific items are copied into your course, but also creates more room for errors and omissions. Use this option only if you want small amounts of course materials (i.e. a certain unit, exam, or content item).  

8.  After making your selection, press Continue at the bottom of the screen.


Allow 10-30 seconds for the copy to take place (length of time will vary based on the size of the course and your internet speed).


Do not close this page until the copy is finished.


10.  Click View Content to verify that everything copied as expected.


Once a course has been copied, be sure to edit the new course for date changes, updates, and to test all links from a student perspective. You may delete unwanted items from the new course, such as outdated Attendance Registers.
