When it is time to repeat an existing course with a new group of students, you can easily copy the course with all of the materials you have already created and organized for your current and past students.
To copy a course, begin by opening the course that you would like to copy. Click the Settings icon in the top right corner to open the settings panel, then click Copy Course.
Next, you will need to create a backup of your course. There are 4 steps in this process that are shown at the top of the new window. On the Initial Settings page, you have several options for what course materials to keep. Scroll through these, and make sure all the materials you’d like to have in your new copy are checked.
When finished, click Next at the bottom of the page.
The Schema Settings page allows an opportunity for you to select specific materials to copy to your new course. By default, all of the materials are selected. If there are any materials you know you do not want to copy, you can deselect them here. In most cases, you will simply want to scroll to the bottom of the page and click Next.
When the Confirmation and Review page opens, you can rename your course if desired, but be sure to leave the .mbz file extension at the end. Scroll down to confirm that you are copying the materials that you need.
At the bottom of the page, click the Perform Backup button.
After a few moments (depending on the size of your course), a page will open that confirms the backup was successfully created. Click Continue to Restore a new version of the course.
You will automatically be navigated to the Restore Course page. Click User Private Backup Area to see any backups you have created. Click Restore next to the backup you just created.
The Restore process has six steps. The first is an opportunity to confirm what is included in the new copy of the course. Simply scroll to the bottom of the page, and click Continue.
Next, you will choose a Category for your new course. By default, the only option is Miscellaneous. Select this, or a different category if an appropriate one is available, then click Continue.
Leave all items checked on the Settings page, and then click Next.
On the Schema page, you can rename your course, and give it a short name. By default, all materials in the file are selected to be restored. Unless you have decided not to restore some of the materials, you should simply scroll down the the bottom of the page, and click Next.
The next page is a final Review of what is to be copied. Simply scroll to the bottom of the page and click Perform Restore.
After just a few moments (depending on the size of the course), a page will open that confirms that the course was restored. Click Continue to be automatically directed to your new course.
