How to import content from one Canvas course into another one

To import course content from one Canvas course to another one, follow these instructions:

  1. Log in to Canvas and navigate to the new course.

  3. Click on Import Course Content.
  4. For Content Type select Copy a Canvas Course.
  5. For Search for a course enter the first part of the course ID, ex. S1805-WFB (this ensures that Canvas narrows down the search until you see your courses), then select the course where the course material is located.
