How do I copy text from a label in one course to a label in another course?

 
 

If you wish to simply cut and past the content from one label area to another label, you can follow the steps below.

NOTE: If you wish to move activities, resources, assignments,, or text from more than one label, follow the instructions for moving content between courses.

  1. Login to Moodle. Click on the class FROM which you wish to take the content in the label.
  2. Once in the your course, click on the ‘Turn editing on’ button in the upper right area.
  3. Find the label/week that contains the content in it that you wish to duplicate. Directly under the content, there will be a little gray wrench. Click on the gray wrench:
  4. In the next screen, select all of the content you wish to copy to the new course.

    • NOTE: If you have a lot of formatting, tables, or images, you may want to switch to the HTML view and copy all of the code, to make sure you copy everything you need to make it look the same in the new course.
