How do I copy content from another Canvas course?

You can copy course content such as assignments, modules, pages, and discussions from previous Canvas courses into existing courses.

This option allows you to copy content into existing courses. You may be able to copy content into a new course shell.

Notes:

  • Draft State settings are retained in course imports. If an assignment is unpublished in a course, the assignment will also be unpublished in the content import.
  • Importing a course more than once may have unintended consequences. If you import content into a new course, edit the content in the new course, and later import the previous content again, the imported content will override the existing content.
  • Not all content can be copied as part of a course.
