How do I link to or copy content from another course?

  • Updated:

Sharing approved content between courses and teachers is easy with Buzz.

Enable a course to be shared

If you have permission to borrow content from another course, the owner of that course (teacher, course author, etc.,) may have to enable that access for you. To do so, they would:

  1. Open the Editor and click Settings in the toolbar.
  2. Check the Include course in subscriber search index box on the Publisher options card.  
  3. Save.
Enable a course to be shared

Access shared course

Copying content between courses not only saves you from having to recreate identical activities, but it also allows you to easily collaborate with colleagues.

To use content from another course:

  1. Open the Editor for the course you want to copy content into.
  2. Select and expand the folder you want to add content to.
  3. Click the plus sign [+] icon next to the folder and select Library.
Access shared course
  1. Select the domain from which you want to copy content; to browse content from your own courses, select your domain.
  2. Select the desired items and folders.
  3. Once you’ve selected all of the content, you can select:
    • Link to Activity to allow the items to be accessed, but not edited in the new course. Linked content reflects updates made to the content source.
    • Copy Activity to create a static copy of the content. Copied content is fully editable, but receives no updates.


  • Using the Create Link option can save significant time when revising activities; simply, build the activity once, create links to other courses, and every revision is automatically reflected.
