How Do I Copy a Curve Course?

Copy content from another Curve course when you want to use or repurpose previously created content including course settings, syllabus, assignments, modules, files, pages, discussions, quizzes, and question banks. You can also copy or adjust events and due dates.

Note: Draft State settings are retained in course copies. If an assignment is unpublished in a course, the assignment will also be unpublished in the course copy.


Open Settings

In Course Navigation, click the Settings link.


Copy Course Content

Click the Copy this Course button.


Enter New Course Details

Enter the Name [1], Course Code [2], Start Date [3], and End Date [4] for the new course.


Select Content

Click the All content radio button [1] if you want to copy all of the content from the course. If you want to copy specific content, click the Select specific content radio button [2].


Adjust Events and Due Dates

If you want to adjust the due dates associated with the course events and assignments, click the Adjust events and due dates checkbox. You have two options to choose from: Shift dates and Remove dates.


Shift Dates: Adjust Beginning and Ending Dates

Click the calendar icon and select the beginning date of the course you are copying [1]. Select the new date you want the new course to begin [2]. Then select the end date of the course you are copying [3], as well as the new date you want the new course to end [4].


Shift Dates: Create Date Substitutions

You can also explicitly define day substitutions to adjust for changing class schedules (i.e. move everything that was on Mondays to now happen on Tuesdays). To create a date substitution, click the Substitution button [1]. Use the drop-down menus [2] to select the days of the week. You can also remove Substitutions by clicking the end icon [3].

You can also choose to remove dates from your course.

Dates will be removed from the following features: 

  • Assignments (due, availability, and peer-review dates)
  • Announcements (post delay dates)

  • Calendar events (start and end dates)
