Copying and Moving Content

You can use the same content for multiple courses or sections, or move it from one course to another.

About Copying and Moving Content

Any content item can be copied or moved from one Course to another Course. Both Courses must belong to the instructor initiating the copy/move.

Copying content does not delete the content from the original location in the Course. Moving content removes it from its original location in the Course.

Course Links can only be copied or moved to another area within the same Course.

Assignments, Tests, and Surveys cannot be copied, but can be moved within the same Course. Course Copy is an alternative way to copy content, including Assignments, Tests, and Surveys, between Courses.
