Canvas@Illinois , Creating a registrar-affiliated course copy

This page has tips for creating a registrar-affiliated course space in Canvas

In order to copy a previous Canvas course into a Canvas course you will need to request a blank Registrar-Affiliated Canvas shell via the Space Request Application: 

  1. Once the blank Canvas shell is made, you will navigate to the course and click Import Existing Content on the right.
