How do I copy a page to another course?

Find your school's Canvas URL

To find your school or institution's Canvas URL, begin typing the name of your school/institution. Results will appear after you type at least 3 characters. For best results be as specific as possible. If you can't find your school, try using any part of your school's name or searching for your school district or state. You may also need to search for the school using the acronym or full name, for example "USU" and "Utah State University".

How do I copy a page to another course?

As an instructor, you can copy individual pages in one course directly into any active course in which you are enrolled. You can also send pages to other instructors at your institution. When you copy a page, any assets within that page (images, files, etc.) will be included in your page 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 page to the same course more than once, the page you previously copied will be overwritten with the newly copied page.
