Using the Copy feature for a content item allows instructors to copy content from one location in the course to another. You can also copy a content item from one course to another.

Please note, that tests cannot be copied using the copy content feature, instead a link is created to the test. This is problematic because if you forget the test is linked and you delete it from the original source then the link to the test will be broken. Tests can be copied over using the Export/Import Individual Test tool (if you use Pools you may also need to Export/Import Individual Pools as well).
