How do I add course templates to my domain?

Teachers and content authors can use course templates to:

  • Create a new course, bringing everything from the template course into the new course you created. Use it "as-is," or use it as a starting point and make it your own.
  • Import gradebook settings. You can pick and choose which gradebook settings you'd like to import and use in a course.

Create the template

To create a template, you create a course as you would any other, and then Add the template to your domain (see section below). Users don't need a subscription to use templates.

Add the template to your domain

To add course templates to your domain:

  1. Open the Domain tool and click Settings in the toolbar.
  2. Select the Course Options tab.
  3. Click Add under the Template Courses section and provide:
    • The Order of appearance if there are multiple templates.
    • The template Title.
    • The name and ID of the course you want to use as a template; click the list (browse) icon to choose from available courses.
  4. Save.
Add the template to your domain


On clicking Save, after adding a template to your domain, the chosen course is set to Public so all course authors can access it. To reverse this:

  1. Open the Courses tool.
  2. Click Edit for the desired course.
  3. Uncheck the Public box.
  4. Save.
