Reusing Canvas Course Materials

If you’d like to reuse Canvas course materials from another course, in whole or in part, please see the Canvas Guide, “How do I copy content from another Canvas course?” for additional details and step-by-step instructions.

When reusing course materials, please remember to review the following items, as appropriate:

  • Update course syllabus
  • Update assignment availability dates, due dates, status (published or unpublished)
  • Review module/content status (published or unpublished)
  • Review course settings:
    • Course dates
    • Course options
    • Navigation menu
  • Create new announcements (Notifications are sent when a new announcement is created in a published course that is within the course start and end dates)
  • Don’t forget to publish your class! Note: You do not need to make your course publically available. As long as your course is published, your students will be able to access it during the course dates.
