Copying Course Content Between Canvas Courses Using the Course Import Tool

Description

Instructors can copy the contents of one course to another, such as from a development course to a live course or across multiple sections of a course. In Canvas, this is done using the Course Import tool. 

Environment

Canvas in your web browser

Solution 

Copying Content 

  1. Log in to Canvas at canvas.ohio.edu and navigate to the course you wish to receive the content (the destination course). 

  2. Follow the instructions provided in the “How do I copy content from another Canvas course using the Course Import Tool?” help article from Canvas. 

Connecting or Pairing Third-Party Content 

If the content you copy from the source course includes links to third-party integrations, such as publisher content, Panopto, Top Hat, Turnitin, VoiceThread, etc., you may need to take some additional steps to ensure that those links work in your new course. This process will vary slightly between tools, but these steps should help to initiate the process. 

  1. If the tool has an option in the course navigation menu on the left (Proctortrack, Panopto, OneDrive, Teams, Top Hat, etc.), start by selecting that option. 

  • This should prompt you to sign into that third-party provider, which will verify your identity and create a new connection between that tool and this course. 

  • It may prompt you to select the corresponding content from the third-party vendor to associate with this new course. 

  1. If the tool does not have a link in the course navigation menu, find one of the links to the tool content within your course and select it. For example, select a corresponding assignment from the Assignments section. 

  • This should prompt you to sign into that third-party provider which will verify your identity and create a new connection between that tool and this course. 

  • It may prompt you to select the corresponding content from the third-party tool to associate with this new course. 

  1. If additional assistance is needed, please select the appropriate support link from our Using Third-Party Integrations in Canvas (Publisher Content and Add-on Tools) help article.
