Fastest way to import new series of similar pages into Canvas

Jump to solution

For the last few days I have been working on finishing the construction of a history course (Course A) for our online department to replace our old history course (Course B) we are currently implementing. The old course  has several pages (namely the lecture video pages) which I would like to reuse in this new course . However, Course A has already had Video Lecture pages already added into it with the same naming scheme as Course B. So, whenever I import the lecture pages from Course B to Course A, I must first delete the old pages from A so I don't create copies of pages.

However I remember being able to upload a new downloadable syllabus for my courses and Canvas asked me if I wanted to replace the current syllabus with the new one. If I replaced the old with the new, Canvas automatically re-linked the new syllabus to every location the old syllabus appeared on Campus - by the way, Canvas Support, phenomenal feature.

So here is my question: is it possible to import Canvas pages into another course and have them automatically placed and linked throughout the course, rather than my needing to manually delete every old page and reconnect every new page throughout the course?

Unfortunately no, this isn't possible with Pages. This worked with your Syllabus because it was a file, which is handled completely different than pages. The best you can do is copy and paste from one course (and course page) to the other Course. This way the original linking would stay the same.

Thanks  @kona ​ for the help. Although it would be nice to have that feature, simply copying over page HTML isn't that difficult either. I'll work with that solution. Thanks again!

That's what I normally end up doing as well!
