Copying a course should be used in cases where you are teaching multiple sections of the same course in the same semester, because content updates and error fixes won’t be included in copies of existing materials.

Copying a course does not copy the student roster, teaching assistants or scores. The new copy will have no registrations, just like any other newly built course.

If you elect to keep the same schedule, the only piece of information that will need to be provided is a new Course Key (since Course Keys cannot be duplicated). You will be reminded of the Course Key of the original course when you select one for the new course.

  1. Visit the My Courses page for the course you want to copy.
  2. In the lower portion of the Course Content section, click Copy Section.
  3. Follow the Course Builder’s prompts. You’ll need to designate a new, unique Course Key, and choose whether to apply the same schedule, create a new one, or build without a schedule.
