Migrating Course Content

Overview

If you previously taught a course in D2L, you can migrate that course's components into another course using the Import/Export/Copy Components tool. 


Step 1. From within the course you would like to copy components TO (e.g., a new course you are creating), click the Edit Course link located on the right side of the course navigation bar.



Step 2. Select Import/Export/Copy Components from the menu.



Step 3. Select Search for offering.



Step 4.  Search for and select the course you would like to copy FROM.  All of the courses you have previously taught will be available to copy from. Click the button next to the course then Add Selected.



Step 5a. Choose either Copy All Components or Select Components.

If you select Copy All Components, the migration will begin. Depending on how much material you are copying over, the process could take a couple seconds or several minutes (particularly if copying large course files).



Step 5b. If you chose Select Components, a list will appear where you can select the items you wish to copy over. Keep the option to (1) Include asscoiated files checked to ensure that all necessary files are imported as well. (2) Click Continue.



Step 6. Review and Confirm the items to be copied and click Finish.
