Specify course offerings to copy

You can specify the course offerings to be copied in one or more CSV files located in the inbox folder. Unless you configure the tool to leave the CSV file in the inbox folder, after the Copy Course Bulk processes a CSV file, it moves the file to the outbox folder.

Each line in the CSV file after the header row represents one course offering to copy.

The CCB process appends copied course content to target destination courses and does not overwrite existing components in the destination course.

You can specify the following values for each course:

Field

Description

Source Course Code or Org Unit ID

The course code or Org Unit ID number for the course offering. Displayed on the Org Unit Editor page (the ID appears in parentheses beside the course offering’s name). Also displayed in the browser address bar when a course offering is accessed (required).

New Course Name

The name for the new course.

New Course Code

The course code for the new course.

This value can match an existing course. If you select the Make copy if course code exists option in Bulk Tool Configuration and this value matches an existing course, Copy Course Bulk makes a copy of the course.

Course Template Code

The code of the template to use for the new course. This template must exist.

Semester Code

The OrgUnitCode of the semester in which to create the course. If this value is omitted, the semester from Bulk Tools Configuration is used.

Day Offset

The number of days to offset the dates on all activities copied into the new course. Enter a positive integer to move forward and a negative integer to move backward in time. If you want to offset the activity dates without entering a Semester Code, specify an empty string in the Semester Code column.

Note: This column is optional. If no value is entered, activities of the new course retain the dates copied from the source course.

Hour Offset

The number of hours to offset the source course time settings. The number of hours to offset the time of day on all activities copied into the new course. Enter a positive decimal to move forward and a negative decimal to move backward. If you want to offset the time of day on activities without entering a Semester Code or Day Offset, specify an empty string in the Semester Code column and an empty string for the Day Offset column.

Note: If no value is entered, activities in the new course retain the time of day copied from the source course.
