Once you have created a course in Canvas, you do not have to rebuild the course from scratch every time you teach it! You can copy some or all of your old course content into a new Canvas shell.
Video Walkthrough #
Importing course content is covered in Canvas’ “Course Creation and Management” video below, about 40 seconds into the video.
Step-by-Step Guide #
For step-by-step instructions, see Canvas’ guide on the Course Import Tool.
Important Note #
Copying course content is not the same as merging (cross-listing) courses. For information on cross-listing, see our guide on Merging (Cross-Listing) Sections.
