  1. Select Copy All Content

  1. Click Next

  1.  Select everything you want copied over, the term the course is in, and the course you are copying.  REMEMBER: It is recommended to copy everything you want this time. It is easier to enable then recreate. 


  1. Select the Destination Shell by pulling down the drop down box. Select term and course.  If the course you want does not populate, it is not a blank shell and contact IT at 765-677-2209 or ext. 2209.
