Greetings, I think I can help you out with this:

- Enable Instructor course creation

   Go to the Settings area of your root account and at the bottom of the Settings page is an option that says "Who can create new courses?"

- Enable Instructor course copy.

   Once the setting above is enabled for teachers, they will all get a new "copy this course" button in their Course Settings. They'll have to be a teacher in the course to see that button.

You'll have to give it a few minutes for these changes to take effect. If you enable teachers to create new courses it can take about 5 or 10 minutes before anyone sees the new option.
