How to Copy-Paste and Import Sections and Learning Activities

Your school's courses can have multiple sections and learning activities. In this article, you will find more information on how you can re-use your course content across the same or multiple courses.


It is possible to copy/paste or import a complete course section or a specific learning activity on the same or to another destination course. 

Copy and Paste Sections

You can copy a course's section and paste it within the same course or a different course destination.


1. Go to the Courses menu.

2. Navigate to your course and hover over the section you wish to copy, in the Contents tab.

3. Use the Copy section & Paste section below buttons accordingly to copy and paste a whole section within the same or a different destination course.

4. Click on Save.

Your content will be duplicated below the paste location.


Tip: You can open simultaneously both courses (original & destination course) on the same browser to complete the copy/paste action of the section. Click here to find out how.

Import Sections

After creating a new course you can import course sections from different courses. From that point, you can keep building up and import more course sections.

In the same way, you can also import a section in a course that already has created content in it.

Once you click on Import Section the respective Import Sections panel will pop up. You can select single or multiple sections to be imported from the same or different course/s. This action will import the whole section and its learning activities.

Notes: 

  • If you want to import an entire course, apart from cloning the course you can also select all of the available sections to be imported from the Import Sections panel.
  • On a Section level, pasted or imported material will automatically carry over the original section settings e.g section title, description will be retained however, the copied/pasted or imported section/s will be set to Draft by default.
  • The copied/pasted or imported elements are given a prefix Copy of plus the retained "original title" name.
  • If the original course has Drip feed by date enabled, the original drip date will be stripped and there will be No date specified. The admin will need to edit the pasted/imported section/s and select a drip-feed date anew. The subject and the body of the Εmail Νotification are pasted/imported as well, but it stays as deactivated hence the admin needs to activate it manually.


Copy and Paste Learning Activities

Similar to copying/pasting a section you can also copy and paste Learning Activities individually. You need to:


1. Go to the Courses menu.

2. Navigate to your course and hover over the learning activity you wish to copy, in the Contents tab.

3. Use the Copy learning activity and Paste learning activities buttons correspondingly to copy and paste a learning activity within the same or a different destination course.

4. Click on Save.

Your content will be duplicated below the paste location.


Tip: You can open simultaneously both courses (original & destination course) on the same browser to complete the copy/paste action of the learning activity. Click here to find out how.

Import Learning Activities

You can import individual learning activities to your created courses. On a learning activity level, you need to click on Import activity, under the desired section. You can also hover over the learning activity and click on Import learning activity below:

In the Import learning activities panel expand the section to reveal the learning activities and select the ones you wish to import.

If you wish to import all the learning activities of a section, click on the section itself, and all the respective learning activities will be selected.

Notes:

  • On a Learning activity level, the preset characteristics and settings are also retained as per the source to the new one e.g the interactive elements of a Video learning unit are carried over.
  • About pasted or imported Live sessions type of activities ( e.g Zoom, Webex). Live sessions are date and URL-specific. To prevent overlapping two identical live meetings, Live Sessions do not carry over the (e.g Zoom, Webex) URL or date. The system only duplicates the Live session activities and retains their title.

Copy/Paste Learning Activities and Sections between different courses

As mentioned, you can open simultaneously both courses (original & destination course) on the same browser to complete the Copy/Paste action of the Learning Activities and Sections.
