Copy to multiple courses

  This idea has been developed and deployed to Canvas


I create all of my content in my "sandbox".  I teach 5 classes that are all the same.  I would like the ability to copy from my sandbox to all of my courses at one time instead of going to each course to copy the material.

May 2016 Update

From Margaret Fuller, Commons Product Manager


I'm excited to announce as of last week, we’ve updated the functionality in Commons to allow users to import content into multiple courses at once.



Here is how it's done:

  • Share the course you want to copy to Commons (publicly, institutionally, or privately)
  • You should be able to select any/all of the courses by check-marking the course(s) to which you want to import.
  • On the resource detail page, Click "Import into Course"

I so agree. 

The same with adding an event in the calendar - can we not add the event to all the courses at once?
