You can copy course content such as assignments, modules, pages, and discussions from previous Canvas courses into existing courses. You only have access to copy content from courses in which you are enrolled as a user with instructor permissions.
A change from Blackboard is that you do this process from the DESTINATION course. For example, if you want to import a fall 2022 course into a source shell, you will go to the source shell to initiate this process.
In Course Navigation, click the Settings link.
Click the Import Course Content link.
In the Content Type drop-down menu, select the Copy a Canvas Course option.
In the Search for a course drop-down menu:
Note: If you have access to more than 100 courses, the search page only displays the Course Name field.
To import all content from the course, select the All Content radio button .
If you want to select specific content, click the Select specific content radio button .
Note: If you select the specific content option, you are required to select the content you want to import after you review the remaining page options. After you start importing the content, the import selection cannot be canceled.
If you want to adjust the due dates associated with the course events and assignments, click the Adjust events and due dates checkbox.
