How do I save course content (files, objectives, powerpoints) in a course for the next time I am assigned to teach that course?
Hi Claire Matthews and welcome to the Canvas Community!
You shouldn't need to worry to much about making a copy to use the next time you teach a course. In Canvas, you should retain access to previous courses and if these are not on your dashboard they should be available if you click on "courses" and "all courses". Our faculty would scroll down to the bottom of all of these courses into a section called "past enrollments." The previous course content could then be copied into your new course (see How do I copy content from another Canvas course using the Course Import tool? ).
If you would like to create a backup file for your course, you could export the course and keep the course export file package somewhere. Then if needed, you could upload this into your new course shell (see How do I export a Canvas course? and How do I import a Canvas course export package? ).
I hope this helps! Good luck!
