Copy and Paste Course Content#


The copy/paste function can currently be used at the component-level of the course outline. In other words, it can be used with text blocks, video blocks, and problem blocks. In future releases, the copy/paste function will be available for other levels of the course outline, including units, subsections and sections.

  1. Choose a component that you would like to copy. This may be a text block, a video block or a problem block.

  2. In the “actions” hamburger in the upper right corner of the component block, click “Copy to Clipboard”.

  3. A notification will appear in the bottom right-hand side of the screen indicating the copy is complete. It should only take a few seconds.

  4. Navigate to the unit where you’d like to paste the component. This may be in the same course or a different course.

  5. Click “paste component”.

The copy/paste feature does not support the ability to sync between components. Once a component is pasted, it functions as an independent entity and any changes made to the new version will not be reflected in the original.
