Move Content from One Course to Another

Move a few items with the Sharing Cart

In the old course with the content you would like to move:

  1. Turn editing on.
  2. If you don't see the blue navigation menu on the left side, click the three-line "hamburger" button at the top left of the page to make it visible.
  3. Scroll all of the way to the bottom of that blue menu and click "Add a block..."
  4. From the list, choose Sharing cart.
  5. You will now see little shopping baskets next to each item to your course. Click on the basket next to the content item(s) that you want to move. It should now be listed in the Shopping cart block in the column on the right of the page.

Go to your new course and follow steps 1-4 above to add the Sharing cart to your new course. Next:

  1. In the Sharing cart in the right column, click the Copy icon next to the item that you want to add to the new course. It's the icon farthest to the right; it looks like two pieces of paper.
  2. You will now see a box at the end of each topic with an arrow inside of it. Click on the box that corresponds to the topic that you would like to contain the new item.
  3. The item will be copied into that topic and will show up at the bottom of the list.

Once you have added the item(s) to your course, delete it from the Sharing cart.

Import an entire course

  1. In your new, empty course, go to the Gear icon and choose Import.
  2. You will see a list of courses. You can search for the course that has the content you would like to import at the bottom of that list. I recommend searching by term (ex: 2021FA or 2019JT) or by the 5-digit number at the beginning of your course title.
  3. Once you find your course, select and choose Continue.
  4. Import settings: choose the content you would like to import. Then choose either:
    1. Jump to final step: everything in your previous course will be imported. You are done!
    2. Next: You will be taken to a list of the topics, resources, and activities in your course. You may select only those items that you wish to import. Click Next at the bottom of your screen. On the next page, you will see the list of items to be imported. Click Perform import. You are done!
