Copy a WebAssign Course in NGLSync

You can create a new course by copying an existing course that has custom content and settings you want to reuse.

Note These instructions are for K-12 teachers who use NGLSync to manage their WebAssign courses.

You can copy your own course, or copy a colleague's course if they share their course key with you.

Note Your new course and the course you are copying must use the same WebAssign product.
Copied changes include:
  • Custom content and activities
  • Activity settings
  • Gradebook settings such as late penalties and category weighting
  • Removal of content and activities not on the syllabus

Changes made to the original course after your new course is created do not affect your new course.
