To copy course components (materials) from one section to another, you must be enrolled as an instructor in both sections. If you are not enrolled as an instructor in one of the sections, eLearning will need to do the copy for you. To request a course copy, please submit a JIRA support ticket.
To copy materials from one section to another, start by going to the destination course and click on the Course Admin link in the course navigation:
Then, select the Import/Export/Copy Components link:
Next, click the button to “Search for offering”. (Note- any other options you see are for importing a template or package from a publisher. Please work with eLearning if you think you need to use either of these tools.)
A new window will open. In the search box at the top, type the exact name of the course you want to copy from, then click Search. Your course will appear in the white space below. Select it by clicking the circle next to the course title, and then click the “Add Selected” button at the bottom. Click close to get out of the window.
You will be returned to the Import/Export/Copy Components window, but this time, your course will have been added.
Finally, click the “Copy All Components” button, and the copy will start. You also have the option to “Select Components” if you’d like to pick and choose which components of the course to copy over. If you aren’t sure which, we recommend you copy everything. It’s easier to delete extra stuff than to come back and figure out what’s missing. NOTE: Copies will not override current materials. Copying a second time will result in duplicate items.
On the next page, you will see a “Copy in Progress” prompt. The process usually takes anywhere from a few seconds to an hour, depending on how much content is in your source shell. Once it’s finished, the prompt will change to “Copy complete” and show a green check mark. That’s it! The course material will now appear in this shell.
If you want to see the log of what copied and when, you can click on the checkmark icon.
