You can use the copy components feature to:
- Reuse components created in a previous course offering.
- Add components created by your peers into your own course offering.
- Set up standard components inside a course template and copy them into a new course offering each time a course is re-offered.
You can import components created in other learning management systems, provided by content vendors, or created in a content creation program (like Respondus). To import components, you must have a file containing the components in a format supported by the Import tool.
You can export components from your course offering to a file. This allows you to reuse these components in another learning management system, including another Desire2Learn Learning Environment, or to store the components and then re-import them into another course offering or template at a later date.
