There are two ways of copying material in Absalon

1. Copying content within a course room

NEW! To copy an items in a course, you have you will have to duplicate it. To duplicate e.g. an assignment, click Assignments in the course menu and click the three dots to the right of the assignment in mind and you will see this window:

Simply click Duplicate and you will get a copy.

This will also apply to modules, pages, quizzes and discussions.

If you want to copy more than one item at a time take a look at this video:

2. Copying/importing content between two course rooms

You can copy course content such as course settings, assignments, modules, pages, and discussions from previous Canvas courses into existing courses.

To copy content from one course room to another, go to the “new” course room’s Settings and find the import button to the right. When importing content select the course that you want to copy material from. If you want to make a copy of your entire course room make sure your new course is empty and that no content has been added.

  • Copy an entire course by selecting “All content” – and you get a full copy of your course
  • Recommendation: Copy specific elements by selecting “Specific content”-  then select all but the prior announcements (watch the video above).
