Self Service: Course Copy

When to Use

Follow these steps to copy a course from one section to another where you are the instructor. This process saves time so you don’t have to re-create content in each section.


  • You must be listed as an instructor in both courses in order to copy content. 
  • To copy assignments, be sure to select BOTH the content area in which the assignment is deployed and located, AND the Grade Center Columns and Settings checkbox when performing a course copy.
  • To copy assessments be sure to select Tests, Surveys, and Pools, the content area in which the assessment deployed and located, AND Grade Center Columns and Settings during your course copy.
  • Course Copy will add content to a course, but it will not remove existing content.
