Course Component Copy


The following instructions are for copying individual items from a course. For instructions on copying an entire course, view the Course Copy page.

    Important Notes Regarding Duplication:
  • Copying components (i.e. quizzes, assignments, etc.) does not overwrite previous items in a course; instead, it adds to the items already in the course.
    • For Example, if a course contains 5 quizzes and a course with 3 quizzes is copied into it, the course will contain 8 quizzes.
  • If the same component or tool is copied multiple times it will create duplicates.
  • The only component that can be overwritten is a course file if the file being copied has the same name as the existing file.
