There are two methods of copying materials from a previous course site into a current one. If you would like to copy over all of the materials from a tool or all of the tools of a previous course, follow the Import from Site option. If you would only like certain files or folders from the Resources tool of a previous site, follow the Copy Content option.
Option 1 – Import from Site
Step 1: Navigate to the “Site Info” tab in the lefthand side tool menu. Click on the “Import from Site” tab in the central page menu.
Step 2: Select the “I would like to merge my data” option. (NOTE: Please do not select the other options, especially if you already have any materials or users in your site.)
Step 3: You will be provided with a list of all of your Sakai sites. Select the site(s) you would like to copy materials from, then select the tools from which you’d like to copy materials.
Option 2 – Copy Content (Resources only)
Step 1: Navigate to the “Resources” tool in the lefthand side tool menu. Inside the tool, expand the “Copy Content from My Other Sites”, revealing a list of all of your other Sakai sites Resources folders. Click on a folder to expand the contents and choose items to copy.
Step 2: Select the folders or files you’d like to copy.
Step 3: Hit the “Copy” button towards the top tool menu, then hit the small clipboard icon directly to the left of your intended destination folder within the home site’s “Resources” tool, successfully copying the content.
