How do I merge two courses?
Greetings Kathryn Merlene
We have a couple guides that should answer your question, depending on your role.
Let us know if this isn't the solution you're looking for.
Hello there, Kathryn Merlene...
Merging two sections is called cross-listing in Canvas. I've answered a couple questions about this earlier this week, so I'll point you to those discussion topics instead of re-posting:
How can I link two sections together?
I hope this information will be of help to you, Kathryn. Please let Community members know if you have any questions about this...thanks!
Merging and cross-listing are not the same thing, and this is extremely confusing. Cross-listing is for multiple sections of the SAME class. Merging is trying to merge two different classes that are in fact cross-listed, as when you have a course that is listed as both English and Women's Studies.
I think this is just a matter of semantics. At the university's I've worked at we referred to cases where you have English and Women's studies, or the goto example I use is Sociology and Anthropology, as a cross-listed course. The course catalog lists them as two independent courses but they are taught at the same time by the same instructor as a single course.
But, whether it's called "cross-listing" or "merging", the process is still the same in Canvas and the links provided by Renee Carney and Chris Hofer should be correct unless your school has their own customized process for doing this. As an example, at my own school we have disabled the ability for teachers to "cross-list" courses in Canvas using the cited processes but instead have our own form set up (referred to as Canvas Merge) where instructors can cross-list or combine their courses together.
Thanks. After several efforts, I was able to do what I needed to, but they are quite precise: build a master course; merger the two cross-listed classes; export the content from the master course into the merged courses. Any other route, and you risk deleting the hours of course content you produced!
