Importing material from another site you own

Note: To complete the procedures in this document, you need to be assigned a role that has the necessary permissions. To find out what your role is, follow the directions in Participant roles. To see a list of what permissions are associated with a given role, see Permissions, roles, and tools. For a basic understanding of roles and permissions, see Permissions and Roles: Overview.

For any course or project site you create, you can import content from other sites you own. You can also combine material from more than one site. To do so, follow these steps:

  1. In the menubar of the destination site, click Site Info.

  2. At the top of the Site Info screen, click Import from Site.

  3. Check the box next to the site that contains the source material. You may choose more than one site. Then, click Continue.

  4. Under the name of the site(s) you selected, check the box next to each tool that contains your source material. If a box is grayed-out, it means the corresponding tool is not available in that site. Then, click Continue.

Note: Your newly imported materials are initially saved as drafts, which means they are not immediately viewable by participants. To make them viewable, you must post them. For instructions, see the following documents:
