How do I get my old class content into my new class? When I create new classes and rosters at the start of the year, can I copy content from my old class into the new one?
Yes! There are several easy ways to do this: you canSharethe class with yourself, useSave Class Asto create a new class or a Template,Mergethe old content into a new imported class, orCopyindividual Pages or Blocks.
If you already have a new class and you want to copy all your content over from your old class, you can go toManage Class > Share Classand share the class with yourself. (Note: This will only work if your Domain Administrator has enabledContent Sharing.) You can alsoSharecontent with other teachers.
Save Class As
If you don't already have a new class, you can go toManage Class > Save Class Asto create a new copy of your old class. If you want to copy this old class to more than one new class, you can also choose to save the class as aTemplate.
If you have a new imported class with a Rosterbut no content, you can merge content from an existing class into the new, content-free class. Go to Manage Class > Merge. Note: This works best if you are only teaching one section of this class. If you are teaching multiple sections of the same class, you willnot want to use the Merge feature. Instead, see our article on setting upRoster Sections.
If you only want to bring some of your old content into a new class, then theCopytool is your best option. You cancopy whole pages usingManage Page > CopyPage,or you can copy individual blocks, using Manage Block button > Copy. You can also Copy a page or a block to multiple classes at the same time.
None of these sharing or copying tools will delete or overwrite content in the existing class: any content that's shared or copied will simply be added to what's already in the new class.
This means that, if you accidentally copy too much (for example, usingSave Class As), you can't "undo" that by simply repeating the process and selecting less content to share - you'd either need to go into the new class and delete the extra content manually, or you could create a second, blank new class and start over.
