In every semester you teach a course, even for classes you've taught before, your newly created Module in myTIMeS will initially be empty. Please use the Import function to quickly copy content from a previous semester module and reuse the content for the current semester.

Step 1, Go into the NEW module where you want to copy the content to.

Step 2, At the tab navigation, Click on the "..." and select Course reuse.


Step 2, Select "Import" from the drop-down list.

Step 3, Choose the module you wish to import data from (use the search option to find a module not listed). Then, click "Continue".

Step 4, Next, you will see a page with options on what type of data to be included in the import. By default, all the items will be toggled on(selected). 

The table below explains each of the items in the Import setting.

    • These are all the things you have added using the “Add a resource or activity” (e.g., Assignments, Files, Quizzes, Forums, etc.)

  • Include files
    • These are any files that have been added to your course.
  • Include filters
    • If you have changed any of the default filters you will want to include this.
