Hi all,

I'm trying to come up with a method to update similar page content across all of my Canvas courses. Here is the scenario: I have around 60 courses under my care and I need to update some of the Policy information we place in each of these courses. The method I currently follow is to go into each course, paste the new information into the course, and save the page. Multiply that 60 times and a simple task becomes a multi-hour project.

I'm curious to know if others in the Canvas Community has run across this particular problem, and what their solutions are to this issue. What are some good practices to mass-update all courses?
