How do I copy materials within a course?



I have a recurring weekly assignment in my course. I'd like to copy or duplicate this assignment. How do I copy materials in a course?


There is no option to directly copy or duplicate materials within a course. Instead, you can save a template of your assignment to your Resources. From there, you can copy as many versions of the assignment as needed back into the course.

Note: To copy materials to a different course that you administer, click the gear icon next to the material and select Copy to Course. You can copy the material to any other course for which you are a Course Admin. Learn more here.

To make a copy of a material within the same course:

  1. Click the gear icon to the right of the material.
  2. Select Save to Resources from the drop-down menu:save_to_resources.png
  3. Choose a location within your Resources where you want to save a template of the material.
    Best Practice: Before you get started saving your course materials to Resources, create collections for each subject area or course. A collection is a container that stores courses, folders, files, and resources you may want to use again. This enables you to curate your course content before moving it into your courses.
  4. Navigate to the material in your Resources. 
  5. Click the gear icon to the right of the material.
  6. Select Add to Course from the drop-down menu.
  7. Select the course and folder to which you want to add the material.
  8. Click Add to complete.
