    A good instructional design practice is to have a predictable module structure for students to follow throughout a course. This means repeating a similar format for pages and assignments within a course.


    Currently copying a module item requires creating a new module and items for each section, and copying content for each item. By adding a “copy” option to the Module gear, the effort to build a course will be greatly reduced. If this triggered a dialogue to state how many copies to make, it would be very simple to quickly build out a course structure.


    Please help to flesh out this idea by discussing your particular use case in the comments.

    As is mentioned above, there is already a way to copy objects including modules into a course using the course copy tool. Commons can also be used to copy a module to another course. Given there are good alternatives to accomplish this goal, we will not be able to invest in adding this feature right now.

    Just to clarify; it is possible to copy a module and its content directly across from one course to another via the import content... copy from a Canvas Course... select content:
