As an instructor, you can copy a module item in a course directly into another course in which you are enrolled. You can also send a module item to other instructors at your institution as well as copy an entire course module into another course. When you copy a module item, any assets within that module item (images, files, etc.) will be included in your module item copy.


  • To share course content, you must have the Course Content - add / edit / delete permission enabled.
  • Shared content does not count against course or user quotas.
  • If you copy the same module item to the same course more than once, the module item you previously copied will be overwritten with the newly copied module item.
