How do I copy a module to another course?

As an instructor, you can copy a module in a course directly into another course in which you are enrolled. You can also send a module to other instructors at your institution as well as copy individual module items to other courses. When you copy a module, any assets within that module (images, files, etc.) will be included in your module copy.

Notes:  

  • To share course content, you must have the Course Content - add / edit / delete permission enabled.
  • Shared content does not count against course or user quotas.
  • If you copy the same module to the same course more than once, the module you previously copied will be overwritten with the newly copied module.
