How do I copy an old course into a new course site?
Copying content from an old course site into a new course site is a fairly easy process, but it is very important to ensure your settings are correct. If not, you run the risk of copying over content you do not want, or missing content you need.
Follow these instructions to copy the contents of one course site into another course site.
Click into the course site you would like to copy content FROM.
Under the Course Management area of the course menu, click on “Packages and Utilities.”
Click on “Course Copy” under the “Packages and Utilities” link.
Click the “Browse” button next to “Destination Course ID.”
Click on the name of the course you would like to copy content into.
Click the “Select All” button under “Select Course Materials.”
Under the “Discussion Board” check box, select “Include only the forums, with no starter posts.”
The content will be copied to the destination site. You will receive an email when the copy is complete.
