  • Verify Permissions: Ensure that you have the necessary permissions to access and copy content from both the source and destination courses.
  • Select the Correct Destination: Double-check that you've chosen the correct destination course where you want to copy the materials. 
  • Consider Date Availability: Be mindful of any date restrictions or availability settings in the destination course. Adjust these settings if necessary to align with the copied content.
  • Review Material Selection: Carefully review and select the specific course materials you want to copy. Avoid copying unnecessary items to keep the destination course clutter-free.
  • Check Links and References: After copying, verify that links and references within the materials still work correctly in the destination course. Update any links that may have changed.
  • Test the Copied Content: After the copy process is complete, navigate through the destination course to ensure that all materials transferred successfully and maintain their formatting.
