How do I copy an announcement to another course?
As an instructor, you can copy individual announcements in one course directly into any active course in which you are enrolled. You can also send announcements to other instructors at your institution.
Announcements that have already been posted do not send notifications to users in the course where the announcement is sent. Announcements that include a delay posting date retain that date and send notifications when the announcement is posted.
When you copy an announcement, any assets within that announcement (images, files, etc.) will be included in the announcement copy. Announcement settings, including delay posting dates, are also included in the announcement copy.
- The option to select a module displays when copying an announcement, but is not functional. You cannot place a copied announcement in a module.
- 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 announcement to the same course more than once, the announcement you previously copied will be overwritten with the newly copied announcement.
In Course Navigation, click the Announcements link.
Click the name of the announcement you want to copy.
