Copying content is useful for copying over specific content from other modules or course groups.
You can copy individual content items to another module where you're the instructor. Please note that some content types, including Tests, require a different process.

Important: You must start in the module you're copying from.

For new content that you would like to 'copy' into multiple modules or course groups, rather than copying you can use the Module/Course Group Manager & Communicator Tool in Tools tab in MyBeckett.  Follow step 4. in this guide to find out how you can quickly complete this task.
