How do I copy a page from one course to another?

 

Sometimes when you're creating a page in a course that requires a similar sequence of widgets and styling, or you just want to copy the content of the same page from a different course, it is easier to copy the existing page and then tweak the content, activities and formatting, instead of starting a page from scratch.

OpenLearning not only allows you to duplicate/copy an existing page within a course, but we also allow you to copy it from one course to another to help you save time.

Note: Want to copy an entire course instead? Click here.

For you to be able to copy a page from one course to another, you need:

  • Course administrators access to both courses (source and destination).

  • Source: Course page URL

  • Unused Destination Course page URL


Take note of the Unused Destination Course page URL where you would like to publish the copy.

Note: The Destination Course page URL has to be an empty one that has not been created in the destination course yet, otherwise it will not work.

 

In this example, I want to copy a page from a Source course to the Destination course in which the Destination’s course page’s URL has not been used yet.

 

Note: If you would like to copy a live or active course page over to a Course page URL that already exists in the Destination course, what you can do is delete the page before attempting to copy the source page again.

Now open a new browser tab or window

Login to the Source Course and navigate to the page that you wish to COPY to the Destination course.

Click on the Settings button (top-left corner of the page you are copying)

Click on the Copy tab

Under the "Copy this page to" field, enter the Destination Course page URL that you took note of in Step 1

Note: Remove the platform URL (the domain part of the URL) by following the format below:

Non-portal courses (courses that are not part of an Institution portal)

  • Format: /courses/course-URL/

  • In this example, the URL would just be

Portal courses (Courses that are part of an Institution Portal)

  • Format: /portal-URL/courses/course-URL/

  • In this example, the URL would just be /bloom-floristry-school/courses/setting-up-your-floristry-business/welcome/
    with /bloom-floristry-school/ being the PORTAL URL

Click on Copy Page.

If the copy process is successful, you’ll be redirected to the new page in the destination course.

In the destination course, go to  Course setup > Content

 

Choose your preferred Module set/Module to put the newly copied course page on.

Click on the ‘Add a Page’  button and type the title/name of the new page, not the New Course page’s URL.

The page will appear in the drop-down (you can confirm by the new page’s URL)

Click on the matching search result to add the new course page to the module.

Note: Make sure that you do not Click on Create a new page.

Note: Do not copy and paste the URL of the new page on the ‘Add a page’ field.

Note: Module Sets and Modules do not have a URL/PATH, which means when you add a page to a Module, the Course Page’s URL will stay the same.

Go to Course Setup → Content

 

Right-Click on the ‘View page’  button and click Copy

Note: Copy the URL of the outdated/page to be replaced just in case you’ll need it later on.

Click on the X button just above the ‘View page’  button to remove the outdated page.

Click on the ‘Add a Page’  button and type the title/name of the new page, not the New Course page’s URL.

The page will appear in the drop-down (you can confirm by the new page’s URL)

Click on the matching search result to add the new course page to the module.

Note: Make sure that you do not Click on Create a new page.

Note: Do not copy and paste the URL of the new page on the ‘Add a page’  field.

Navigate to the course page you wish to delete

Click on the Page Settings button (top-right corner)

Click on the Advanced tab

Click on the ‘Delete This Page’  button.
