Copying a Course's Content Slide

Article summary

Copying a content slide's HTML code to another content slide duplicates the contents and formatting. If you've purchased a custom course template package, copying the HTML code from one of the template's content slides enables you to include the layout in your course. 

Once the content slide has been added to a course, you can duplicate the content slide within the course to use the layout. 

Copying a Content Slide's Code

PREREQUISITE STEPS: Create an online course and add a content slide to the course.

The following terms will be used in the following instructions:

  • Source - The content slide task from which you are copying the HTML code. If you are copying one of the layouts included in the course template package, the source would be the course template package.
  • Target - The content slide task that you would like to copy the code to.

  2. From both windows, click the HTML Editor tab.
Be sure to complete the following step from the TARGET webpage's Source Code window.

    1. Click anywhere in the target's HTML Editor tab.

You can confirm that the source and target are the same by clicking the Preview tab in both windows. The two content slides should look identical. 

You should NOT use inline styling to make branding updates to your courses. Inline styling can make updates more difficult and has the potential to break the code used in your course template.

If you need the branding used in your course templates updated, we recommend that you contact our Success Desk for assistance.
