How do I link two sections so if I post something to one section it posts to the other, also?

I don't want to cross-list my course, but I do want to link it.  For example, Sections 1 and 2 will have the same homework assignments, but with different due dates.  I want to be able to post the assignment to Section 1, and have it post on Section 2, also.  Once it does this, I can go in and change the due dates.

Hi Cecilia,

Do I understand correctly that you want to have a master course that you can copy into multiple sections (aka Canvas courses) and then go in and modify the due dates for each section?  Or do you only want to make multiple copies of several assignments and push them into multiple sections?

I'd still recommend crosslisting the sections. When you create an assignment/quiz, you can list different due dates for each section quite easily. 

Assign to the first section, then click the "Add" button below to add an additional assign box and choose your second section with a different date.
