About creating courses from templates

Courses have a Template Options setting that grants or revokes permission for the course to be used as a template. By default, courses cannot be used as templates. You must first edit the Template Options to grant permission for a course to be used as a template.

To create a new course from a template, use the Course Creation Wizard to create the course. The Course Materials page of the wizard allows you to select the template to use as the basis for the course.
