Course Combine

Teaching two sections of the same course but only want to post content once?

→ ANSWER: Make a combined course!

Use the cross-listing feature in Canvas BEFORE the course start date to make managing two sections of the same course easier. NOTE: Once students begin submitting assignments (quizzes, uploads, discussions) to the courses, they cannot be combined.

We recommend combining courses BEFORE adding course material and before publishing the cross-listed Canvas course.
