What are the benefits and drawbacks to cross-listing a course?

Community Contributor

I have a Nursing faculty who wants to cross-list her courses in the future, she teaches the exact same content across two different cities. Her current process is that she builds the content in one course and then copies that same content to the other course, but has ran into the problem where the other content gets overlooked in the import process. This is a problem when it comes to testing because there may be content that is completely missing and the other batch of students misses on learning their content.

Any ideas to help this process out would be most appreciated.

Thank you for your time.
