Perusall: Copy a Course

​Important Note: These instructions assume you have completed a Blackboard Course Copy from a Blackboard Developmental Course or a previous semester course which used Perusall for content and assignments. This will ensure Perusall links carry over. This process will carry over materials, assignments, instructor comments, and course settings.​

There are two ways to copy Perusall materials from one course to another, you can Copy From: One of my courses or Copy From: Another instructor's course, using a copy code. This page will explore both. You will want to begin in the current semester's course (the course you would like to copy the content to).​

Copy From: One of My Courses

1. Inside the Perusall course, go to the Library and click on Add Content. From the list of options select, Materials from another course.

From the Library tab select ad content 

2. Select the Copy from: One of my courses option. A drop-down menu will appear, and you will be able to select from any of the courses in which you are an instructor.

3. Once you have selected the course, a list of content to copy and their matching assignments will appear. You can check or uncheck the individual items, or click the Select all or Select None options.
