All course content can be copied from one semester to another, or from one course section to another. This import does not include past student enrollment or any submissions made to the original course. The import will create a clean version of the course.
Access the empty course shell. This is the course the content will be copied into.
In the top blue toolbar click the Course Tools menu
From the Course Tools menu choose Course Admin
Under the Site Resources section choose Import/Export/Copy Components
Under the title What would you like to do? Select Copy Components from another Org Unit
Under Course to Copy: press the Search for Offering button
A new window will open, enter the course name for the course shell containing the content.
Enter the name as the Subject and Number, example MATH110. If you would like to narrow down the search you can enter in the year and semester abbriviation, example 2023FA
Semester abbreviations are Fall = FA, Spring = SP, Summer = SU, JTerm = WI
Select the course that contains the content to be copied and press the Add Selected button
Press the Select Components button.
On the Choose Components to Copy page, check the box for Select All Components and then uncheck the box for Announcements. This avoids sending the previous semester’s Announcements (a copy of which appears in students' email) to any students enrolled in the destination course.
Click Continue and Finish.
You can wait and watch the progress bar until the copy is completed, or navigate away to work on other courses while the copy completes.
Once the content is available you can bulk edit start and end dates using the Manage Dates tool.
