How do you import a class shell onto an already created course?
Deanna, this guide will show you how to copy content from one Canvas course into another: How do I copy content from another Canvas course?
And this guide explains how to export content from a previous course: How do I export a Canvas course?
...and then import the resulting package into the new course: How do I import a Canvas course export package?
If the course shell (the "already created course") into which you're importing content already has content in it, be careful: Your course import might overwrite existing content. In that case, make sure that you choose the Select specific content option when you're importing and choose carefully.
I also wanted to let you know that I've edited your idea slightly, because the question is repeated in the body of the discussion. The new title should make the question more readily visible in search results.
