Copying the Same Content into Another eLearning Commons (eLC) Section
Once you have course content set up in an eLearning Commons section, you can copy the entire content of that section into a new eLC Section. The new section will be an exact copy of the section you copied (minus the students).
Click on your new eLC Section
- Before you copy content from one eLC section to another, you need to know the exact title of the eLC section that you are going to copy. The title of the course is a unique identifier for each of your sections that appears in the upper right corner of the header in each of your eLC sections. Make a note of the title, since that will be the title you select in step #5.
From your My eLearning Commons page, select the link to enter your new eLC section.
When you first enter a new section, you'll be presented with four options:
- Your course, if it's a cross listed course, may have a title like this example: 09FA-01923-XL - 09FA-01923-XL
Select option #2 - Copy content from another course (another eLC course), then click CONTINUE.
Next you'll be presented with a list of ALL eLC sections where you are an Instructor of Designer, even ones that you may have hidden from your view on your My eLC Page. Select the title of the section with content you'd like to copy into your new section (determined in step #1), then click CONTINUE.
Next you'll see the Set Up Course page and a status bar. When the process is complete, you'll be taken into the new section.
Finally, go to Selective Release in the TEACH tab of your new section and remove any selective release criteria that may have been copied from your previous use of the course content.
If you copy the wrong course content into your new section, you cannot undo it yourself. Contact the EITS Helpdesk to have an eLC administrator reset the section to blank, and include the course name and UGA call number of the section.
