Importing content from a previous course into your new Course

The Import from a Course or Group feature allows you to import content from courses or groups.  As an instructor, you may copy content from any course or group in which you have editing rights. Please be very careful to make sure you are in an empty course before following the import procedure described below. Also be sure to back up your old course before importing first.

For more on this topic see “How to Copy Content Items from One Course to Another” in Appendix VII: ANGEL Step-by-Step
