How do I import content from my other course?

You will learn how to import content from one course or course section to another course or course section. For example, if you are teaching two sections of the same course, you can build your content in one section and then import that content into the second section.

To use the Import tool to bring content from one course into another course, follow these steps.

1. Upon login to TITANium, you'll see your Dashboard.
