How to Import Course Content

If you are teaching a course that you have taught in a previous semester at UNCSA, you can import all or some of the content from the previous course into this semester’s course.  

  1. Open the course to which you would like to copy previous course content.
  2. Choose “Import Existing Content” from the menu on the right.
  3. Under Import Content choose “Copy a Canvas course” for Content Type.
  4. In the Search for a Course window, type the ID for the course you would like to copy, e.g., MAT0052 and then choose the appropriate course from the list that appears.
  5. Choose whether you would like to copy all course content or select specific content only. (If you want to select specific content, you will do that after you select import.)
  6. If you would like to adjust event and due dates, choose that option and enter the appropriate dates.
  7. Select “Import”.
  8. If you chose to select specific content, you will now select the “Select Content” button and choose the content that you would like to import. The status of the Course Copy will change to “Completed” when the copy is finished.
