Hi  @rsumner ...

When you use the Course Import Tool, it should automatically update the links in the new course to point to the right content so you don't have to worry about those links pointing back to the old course.  You can use these instructions: How do I copy content from another Canvas course using the Course Import tool?.  Also, it's always a good idea to check your course for broken links before the course starts...so that you can fix anything that might be broken.  Canvas does have a link checker that you can use, and it will identify any links that point to other courses.  Here's a Guide for that, too: How do I validate links in a course?.

I hope that these resources will be of help to you, Ray.  Sing out if you have any other questions for Community members.  Stay safe, and be well.
