How to Use the Copy From Functionality
Updated: June 2021
Description: The “Copy From” functionality in AEFIS allows you to copy the Syllabus Form, Course Schedule, Assignments, and/or Assignment Linking from one Course/Co-curricular Section to another. This tool is useful for Course/Co-curricular Sections using similar course materials across terms or within the same term. This is especially useful to instructors who teach multiple sections of the same course. To learn specifically about copying Assignments and Assignment Linking, check out our guide on How to Copy Over Assignments and Assignment Linking Across Terms.
Applicable to: Institution Admin, College Admin, Department Admin, Course Coordinator, Instructors*, Course Section Directors*
*Instructors and Course Section Directors may only copy Section data from Sections where they are the instructor of record in AEFIS. They will not have access to copy from Sections they are not assigned to.
