In the event that you'd like to reuse content from an existing course, you can very easily copy a course within your Thought Industries learning site. Any changes made to the initial course will not impact the new course, and vice-versa.
Copying a Course
- From your homepage, select Content, then Manage Content.
- Click the Content Title for the course you want to copy and then go to the Release Step.
- Click Copy.
- Enter your New Course Title.
- Click Copy Course. The copied course will now appear in the Manage Content List and can be edited separately from the original course.
Which Settings or Assets Do Not Copy Over
Although copying a course keeps the content in the outline and some general settings, some settings and fields do not carry over to the new course from the original. We always recommend going through the authoring steps to set up the new course before releasing to your learners.
Here are the fields that do not copy over to the new course:
- Force Linear Progress
- Related Content
- Prerequisite Content
- Credit Requirement
- Award Claiming
This list is referring to copying a course in the same instance. If you are copying courses across instances, this list may be different. The course outline and content will always copy over across instances, but we recommend checking all other course settings to make sure the new course is set up properly.
