How to Copy an Item, Learning Modules, or Folder

leave a comment »

One of the things you often hear about creating online courses is the need for consistency. It is easier for students to follow the content if the content modules are similar in layout. This is easy if you use the copy command. You can create an item and get it laid out properly, then copy the item to multiple places within the course. The new copied file content can simply be edited thereby maintaining the format of the document. Items, learning modules, and folders can be copied.

To copy an item:

  • Go to the content area where the item is displayed.
  • Click the Action Link beside the item to reveal the conceptual menu.
  • Select the copy command from the menu.

Copy an Item, Learning Modules, or Folder

  1. On the copy page the first item displays the destination course where you want the item displayed. This should be the course in which you are copying from.
  2. Item 2 will be the place you want the item displayed in the course. Click Browse to determine the destination folder.
  3. Item 3 is Submit, this will execute the command.

Once the item is copied go to the destination folder you selected and the item will appear. Click the action link beside the item to reveal the contextual menu and select edit to modify the document.
