Copy and Duplicate Content in Content Library


This article is for general users of ClassDo e.g. students. If you are an organisation owner, admin, or member with admin permissions e.g. tutor, please refer to this article.

Want to duplicate a document or sketchpad complete with all your annotations, or have a copy of a certain document in all of your groups or rooms? There is no need for you to manually re-upload the same document to all your groups and rooms. You can simply copy the content anywhere you want, even if the content was originally stored in a group or desk!

However, note that some types of content cannot be copied, namely Typepads, Polls and YouTube videos. If you would like to move them to a different folder, you can move the content to another group/ room without creating additional copies. 

In this article:


1

Enter the Content Library

From the Organisation Page, choose the room where the content is currently stored in. Click  View Content Library.

Alternatively, click  Content Library at the top left corner of the page.

Click the  folder of the room where the content is.

Click the  folder of the group/desk where the content is.

As you do not have the permission to rename, create/upload any content in the main room without host approval, you CANNOT copy content from the Main Room.

You can only copy from group folders or your own desk.
