What's the difference between importing content and copying a course?
Hi Laura. This is a good question. Reading this document may be helpful as it discussed the option of copying a course, https://upike.instructure.com/courses/1011/copy. Essentially, if you have the ability to create a course then copying a course allows you to duplicate the class and content without having to create the empty shell and them copying the content in using the import tool, basically saving someone time. Using the course import tool, you can copy in the content from an existing class or select a course export file to import into the shell. Not everyone has the authority to add courses at some institutions. Where I work, for example, only Canvas administrators can manually create a course.
I hope this helps!
