KB1101 - How do I create a COPY of an Existing Course?
Posted by Blair Friesen, Last modified by John Love on 12 June 2018 04:32 PM

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:

  1. From the first page of the course you want to copy, click on "Restore."
  2. Under the "Automated backups" area of the page, locate the latest backup and click on the "Restore" link at the far right.
  3. Scroll down to the very bottom (Hint: With Windows, Ctrl+End will take you to the bottom, quickly.)
  4. Click on [Continue]
  5. 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.
  7. UNCHECK the "Include enrolled users" check box.
  8. Click on the [Next] button.
  9. 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.)
  10. Change the Course short name to the Subject code and course number.
  11. Change the course start date.  IMPORTANT NOTE:  If you are not removing the users, for some reason, DO NOT change the date.
  12. Scroll to the bottom and click on the [Next] button.
  13. Scroll to the bottom and click on the [Perform restore] button.
  14. 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.
