How do I copy a module to another course?

How do I copy a module to another course?

As an instructor, you can copy a module in a course directly into another course in which you are enrolled. You can also send a module to other instructors at your institution as well as copy individual module items to other courses. When you copy a module, any assets within that module (images, files, etc.) will be included in your module copy.

Notes:  

  • To share course content, you must have the Course Content - add / edit / delete permission enabled.
  • Shared content does not count against course or user quotas.
  • If you copy the same module to the same course more than once, the module you previously copied will be overwritten with the newly copied module.

Are you able to copy a module to cross-listed courses? I am having an issue where I want to copy content from my Sandbox to my courses that have been cross-listed. The cross-listed course doesn't show up as an option in the copy to list. 

@crystal_burnett you should be able to copy content to the parent course (the course you cross-listed all of the sections into) but you won't see the courses you cross-listed from (the children course). If the parent course isn't showing up as an option when you're copying modules, I recommend reaching out to Canvas Support (https://community.canvaslms.com/t5/Instructor-Guide/How-do-I-get-help-with-Canvas-as-an-instructor/t... ). Let us know if you have any other questions.

Thanks,

- Nathan
