    A good instructional design practice is to have a predictable module structure for students to follow throughout a course. Many courses use the calendar to clearly communicate deadlines to students, and must do so with consistent format.

     

    Currently copying requires creating a calendar event, and copying content for each item. By adding a “copy” button, 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 calendar structure.

     

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

    For better or worse, this can be accomplished using the recurring activity option for Calendar. That solution doesn't perfectly serve all the cases this particular request might cover, but it's as close as we'll get for the time being.
