Course Component Copy


Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Note: Follow these steps to copy individual items from a course. To copy the entire course, view the Course Copy page.

Important Note Regarding Duplication:

  • Components or tools (i.e. quizzes, dropboxes, etc) that are copied multiple times will create duplicates. For example, if a course contains 5 quizzes and a course with 3 quizzes is copied into it, the course will contain 8 quizzes.
  • The only component that might be overwritten is Course Files. A course file is overwritten if one of the files being copied has the same name as an existing file. No other components are overwritten.
