The Walker Center for Teaching & Learning has identified a handful of fall 2013 courses with errors resulting from a course copy of material from a previous semester. The identified error causes broken links to uploaded course materials for student users; links will not appear as broken for the instructor who completed the course copy operation.

Instructors with errors in their copied classes have been notified of the problem. This issue is intermittent and does not affect every copied course. However, to avoid the possibility of copy errors within your course, please refrain from using Course Copy to move course materials from one course to another. Instead use Export Course and Import Package to copy materials from one course into another for reuse.  Additionally, uncheck the option to “Limit package to only files linked into the selected content areas.”
