This document is about copying course content for Original view Scholar course. For copying content into an Ultra course, refer to the documentation here

Each semester, course shells are created for you automatically based on the Registrar's data on CNU courses.  Each course gets a course shell. Past semesters remain in the system for 2 years after the course is over. This gives you plenty of time to choose which materials you would like to re-use.

Log into the system and enter the course that contains the material you would like to move into another course shell.

On the control panel, click Packages and Utilities and select Course Copy
