NOTE: Not everyone has the access rights to copy a course. Generally, this access is granted only to those in an Administrator or Manager role. If you are an instructor, needing a copy of a course, please start here and follow the links.
If you have the access to copy a course, follow these instructions:
- From the first page of the course you want to copy, click on "Restore."
- Under the "Automated backups" area of the page, locate the latest backup and click on the "Restore" link at the far right.
- Scroll down to the very bottom (Hint: With Windows, Ctrl+End will take you to the bottom, quickly.)
- Click on [Continue]
- Under the area "Restore as a new course," select your department area. If you don't see it, type a part of the name in the Search field to locate it and then select it.
- Click on the [Continue] LOCATED AT THE BOTTOM OF THE RESTORE AS A NEW COURSE SECTION.
- UNCHECK the "Include enrolled users" check box.
- Click on the [Next] button.
- Under the "Course Settings" area, change the Course name (Please start with the Subject code and course number, followed by the official course name from the Program Content Guide.)
- Change the Course short name to the Subject code and course number.
- Change the course start date. IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are not removing the users, for some reason, DO NOT change the date.
- Scroll to the bottom and click on the [Next] button.
- Scroll to the bottom and click on the [Perform restore] button.
- Wait for the restore to complete. This can take several minutes, depending on how many resources and activities you have in the original course shell. When it's competed, click on [Continue].
You will now be directed to the main page of the new course shell. You may need to change the visibility and enrolment key.
