Duplicating a course or making a copy of an activity

In this article, we’ll go over how to:

1 - Duplicate a course

2 - Make a copy of an activity

 

1 – Duplicating a course

  • Open a course that you want to duplicate
  • Click on the Duplicate icon in the upper right-hand corner, as shown below:

 When you duplicate a course, bear in mind that:

  • You can change the general course information of the duplicated course, these changes will not be applied to the original course.
  • You can change the order of activities in the duplicated course, these changes will not be applied to the original course.
  • If you edit an activity (i.e edit a question or a cheatsheet or update a document) changes will also be applied to the original version of the course. To make changes without affecting the original version, you can make a copy of the activity (see below). 
  • You can add/delete a cheat sheet or question in your duplicated course. The new cheat sheets/questions will not be added to the original version of the course. Deleted cheat sheets/questions in the duplicated courses will not be deleted in the original version.

Please note: for duplicated courses, only the authors of cheat sheets or questions can edit them. An administrator cannot modify a duplicated course if they are not also the author of the activities contained in the course. 

 

2 – Making a copy of an activity

Creating a copy of an activity (worksheets or questions) keeps you from creating a new activity from scratch. 

To do so:

  • Go to the activity you wish to copy
  • Click on Create a copy:

  • A new version of the activity is created: you can now edit it and not worry about impacting the original version
  • Then, delete the initial activity.
