Import, Copy and Export Courses/Course Items

To re-use course content from the previous year or semester it is possible to import, copy and/or export course materials.

Imported or copied quizzes are set to ‘Inactive’ by default. After importing or copying quizzes, instructors can change the state of each quiz from the Quizzes tool, if necessary. Intelligent Agents that are copied or imported from another course, will also be set to ‘Inactive’ per default.

Importing a Course or Course Items from an existing source.

There are two ways to import your course or content items:

  1. Import Components from external sources: this option is used for content items originated outside of Brightspace.
  2. Copy course material from existing courses in Brightspace: use this option to copy a course, or specific course items, from one course in Brightspace to another.
