Introduction

The Course Component tool is very useful if you offer the same course more than once. Using this tool you can copy course content, course files, news, links, dropboxes, grade books, quiz questions, quizzes, and surveys from one course to the next. The Component tool is accessible from the course management console by first clicking the Edit Course link and then the Components link in the course editing navbar.
