Archive vs Resources for Importing and Re-using Course Materials from previous year


This is the second time I am writing with this question to Schoology Support.  I thought I would try this avenue. When my courses moved to ARCHIVE STATUS, each of my folders retained the original colors, which has been set up by our district for all teachers to follow. When I saved my materials/courses to resources, all the folders changed to a default of blue. My question is this. Is there a way to IMPORT courses for next year directly from ARCHIVED or does it need to be copied to resources first? I cannot find an answer to this within the community. Thanks for your time.

    Hi Denise, 

    Thank you for reaching out in the Schoology Community!

    Currently, the ability to import archived courses to resources is not a supported feature in Schoology.  You will have to save the courses to resources first and then import the saved materials into your new course(s).  However, as a workaround in your archived courses, you can add a new section with the same course materials as an existing section by clicking the gear icon to the right of the section you'd like to copy and select " Copy Section". Once you perform this action, you can add the new section to a new grading period.

    My question is similar, I have a group resource folder that another staff member is the admin for.  She left, and while we have access to the folder, we cannot add anyone to it since we are not admin.  Is there a way to change ownership of the group resource, or do we need to copy everything to a new resource folder and add the new teacher?

    Hi Chip,

    Thank you for reaching out to the Schoology Community!

    Staff members who are not added as admins on the course can copy the resources into their own personal resource.However, System Administrators can assign a new member as a course admin.You can learn more about it here.
