Copying metadata from another Content resource

If another resource in your course content has similar metadata, you can copy that resource’s metadata and then modify it, rather than re-entering the information from scratch.

Note  Copying metadata clears all existing metadata, including metadata not visible in the current view.

Copy metadata

  1. On the Edit Metadata page for the module or topic you want to modify, click Import Metadata.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • Click Import XML File to import an XML file from course files or your computer.
    • Click Copy Metadata from Course, Module or Topic to copy a metadata record from the course, or from a module or topic within the course.
  3. If you are importing an XML file, select a file to upload. If you are copying metadata from a course, module or topic, click the name of the resource you want to copy metadata from.
  4. Click Import, or Import Metadata.
