Can I copy a canvas course from another facility into my Canvas dashboard to access past teaching material. If so How do I do it?
john, greetings! Unless you are listed as an Instructor for that course, the easiest thing is to have the other Instructor download and save their course and then send the file to you to upload into one of your courses in Canvas (you'll have to have a course to upload the new content into).
Here's the info you need to do this:
How do I export a Canvas course? (for the other Instructor)
How do I import a Canvas course export package? (for you to add the course to one of your courses)
Hope this helps! Kona
Is it possible to have an area in canvas to keep common material shared by
Hi again, john lyga...
You could check with your school's local Canvas administrator to see if they would be willing to set you up with a course "sandbox" shell where you and others could keep that common material. You could also share any of that material to Canvas Commons so that other people at your school could access it as well.
Hi john lyga...
In addition to the information that Kona Jones provided, another option for you might be to see if your local Canvas administrator would allow you temporary access into the other instructor's course so that you could copy/import the course content yourself. Your school may have policies against this, so you'd want to check with them first. If they are not willing to enroll you in the other instructor's course, you could ask them if they would be willing to import the course content from the instructor's course to your course for you...as Canvas administrators have access to everything.
I hope this helps, John.
