Instructors can copy course content such as assignments, modules, pages, and discussions from previous Canvas courses into existing courses (entire courses can also be copied). Importing a course more than once may have unintended consequences. If you import content into a new course, edit the content in the new course, and later import the previous content again, the imported content will override the existing content.
Instructors can copy/import their course content from prior semesters. Using the Canvas Course Import Tool, instructors can choose all content or select specific content from a prior course that they taught and import into their new course.
Instructors can convert a Word Document to an Excel or Google Sheets and then export it as a CSV file convert it to a .QTI file and import it into Canvas as a classic quiz.

This process can save the instructor lots of time.

Using Annoto, students can make personal time-stamped notes and sentiments on instructor videos and then export them and upload them as an assignment submission.
Instructors can use the Annoto add-on (any video created, uploaded, or linked using Kaltura) to create an Assignment that allows students to create and submit personal notes for an assigned video.
Adding videos to pages is a quick process when using the Rich Content Editor. The Embed Kaltura Tool is recommended as it allows for uploads, direct recording and screen capture, linking to public Youtube videos, and importing content from MyMedia Videos can be added just about anywhere in Canvas when you interact with the Rich Content Editor (announcements, discussions, quizzes, assignments, etc.)
