How to Copy an Existing Cirrus Course in Canvas

If your school is not using Canvas LMS

These steps are for Canvas. If your school is using a different LMS, the course creation from a template process may look different.

For Paradigm Canvas users only
Instructors can duplicate existing Cirrus courses and produce multiple copies. Once a course is copied, you can invite instructors to participate and optionally remove yourself from the course.

The Copy this Course feature is located on the course settings page. You must publish your course before students try to access it.


Step 1: Login to Cirrus.

  1. Select the course from your Dashboard. 
  2. Select the Go To Course button.

STEP 2: The course Homepage will be displayed.


STEP 3: Select Settings in the left navigation menu.


STEP 4: Select the Copy this course button on the right navigation menu.


STEP 5: The Copy this Course box will load. Complete the following:

  1. Enter a name for your new course.
  2. Enter the number of copies to be generated.
  3. Enter an email address to receive notification when the copy has completed.
  4. Select the Copy Course button.

Copy completion time

Depending on your course size, and the number of copies requested, the copy process may take a few hours to complete. If you entered an email address, you will receive notification when completed.
