How do I copy Activities from a previous course?
If you've set up several activities with instructions, options, Rubrics, and/or source media in a previous course and would like to copy them all over to your new course, you can do that easily:
- If you are creating a new course, just select the course you wish to copy from in the "New Course" settings window.
- If you have already created a course, you can click the "Course Options" button next to the course name in the course drop down menu on the upper left and select "Edit Course". Here you'll see the same "Copy Activities" option.
When copying activities from a previous course, if you had due dates assigned to them, we will use the start dates of your old and new courses to estimate the new due dates for the activities being copied in. We will display these automatically in the expanded activity panel. Please make sure to check these and adjust if needed! (For more on setting up courses, see Course Setup.)
Editing Activity Order
You spoke, and we listened! You can now rearrange your activities however you want by dragging and dropping them into your desired order. To do this, hover over the activity you want to move, grab the blue handle on the left, and drag it to the desired spot in the list. Happy Day!
Managing Activity Due Dates
You can expand your Activity panel (lower left panel of your Dashboard) by opening the course drop down menu, clicking on the Course Options icon (three dots) next to the course name, and selecting Edit Activity Due Dates. When expanded, you'll see the Activity Manager view.
This view allows you to see more Activity settings at a glance and manage the due dates all at once. If you wish to edit the activities individually, open the Activity Options menu (three dots next to the activity name) and select Edit Activity.
When finished, click "Close" and the normal left-side panels will appear.
