Copy Course Component

Copying course components allows you to easily reuse or share your course resources in another course. This tool is useful for faculty who teach the same course; either in more than one section or more than one semester and do not want to enter the course information/files in the D2L system more than once. It also allows faculty to share resources with colleagues. Student information (submissions, quizzes, discussions or grades) will not copy over to the new course.

Note: You must be enrolled in each course with the role of faculty or faculty guest to have the necessary permissions to copy course content.

To copy an entire course into another course:

Log into D2L and click on the course you are copying components into.

  1. Click Course Admin in the navigation bar.
  2. Click on Import/Export/Copy Components.
