Instructions for importing the
Mines eLearning Template for Face-to-Face (F2F) courses

The following instructions demonstrate how to import the Mines eLearning Template for F2F courses from the Canvas Commons.

Important: When importing the template, or any course from Commons, into a course within Canvas, all existing content will be wiped out of the course. Make sure your course is ready for the import and any content that might be in the course currently is saved in multiple places such as on your computer and in a cloud-based backup (ex. O365).
