Importing course elements from another course

FELIX 30-005

What you need to know

With the version 16.1 release it is now possible to import single or multiple course elements from one course to another.

What you have to do

  1. Click Administration in the course in which you want to import course elements and open the "Course editor".

    • The course editor will open.

  2. Select "Import course elements" in the shaded area (above).

    • The "Import course elements" wizard opens.

  3. Search for the desired course.

    • If necessary, use the filters to search for the course and customise the table using the gear icon on the right.

  4. Select the desired course and click "Next".

  5. Select the course element(s) you want to import. Click on "Next".

    • The wizard gives you important hints, e.g. when importing a group task ("Groups are not taken over"). It is partly possible to select which components of the course element should be imported.

  6. In the last step you can "Select files", e.g. when importing html pages.

    • In this case, it is important that you activate and copy linked files, such as images. Then click on "Finish".
      If there are "no files to copy", then click "Finish".

    • The course elements are imported and displayed to you in the structure on the left.

  7. Click the red cross (top right) to close the course editor. Select the "Publish automatically" option to publish the change. 

    • The course view opens.

  8. If you have set in-course links in the course elements, these must be renewed.
