Tips and Best Practices

  • If you are importing from a previous semester, select  the Adjust events and due dates option. This will reveal the Remove dates button. Click this button to clear all previous dates used for Assignments etc.
  • You can chose to import only specific parts of a course using the “Select specific content”  button in the Content block
  • Draft State settings are retained in course imports. For example, if an assignment is unpublished in a course, the assignment will also be unpublished in the content import.
