Please note: this form is for use by HSU faculty and staff only. If you are a student, do not use this form. If you need help getting access to a Moodle site, please contact your instructor or the Technology Help Desk at (707) 826-HELP (4357).

If your course is a regularly scheduled HSU or Extended Education course and you are the instructor of record in the Account Center, a course shell is automatically set up for before the beginning of the semester. You DO need to request your class be activated if you do not copy it. To do this:

  • If you have NO content to bring forward, or are teaching this for the first time, please ACTIVATE your course by using the New Course Request at the end of the Guidelines below.
  • For Combining Multiple Classes into a Meta Course, please use the link at the end of the Guidelines below.
  • If you wish to reuse content from a previous class in this new shell, complete the Course Copy form below. The maximum copy size is 500MB. While you may still use older classes, they are more likely to have issues moving to version 2.3 due to links expiring and code changes. Please expect that  some updating may be required.  We are here to help with transfer issues.

Please provide all the requested information and submit one form for each class. The act of submitting the form will automatically generate a help desk ticket. All forms are processed in the order they are received, so please don’t send an email as well. Start dates for copied courses are determined by when the empty course shells are available to use, so don’t submit too early as we may have no way to process your request. Instead, use the available time to update your course materials.

Guidelines: Copies begin 4/21

  • We do NOT recommend copies of course older than Spring 12. If you wish to use older  classes, use the comment block below for that  information.
  • A copy is an all-or-nothing Choice. Please delete any material you do not wish copied (you may also remove or update the content once it’s been transferred to the new course).
  • At the request of faculty, all new courses will be hidden. Please unhide your class after editing so the students can see it.
  • Spring 14 Course Copies may be submitted now. Processing Begins 4/21. All requests are processed in the order in which they are received.
  • Multiple requests or  incomplete requests will slow down your copy.

This form is for instructor use only. If you are a student and have questions about copies of courses materials, please contact your instructor or the Technology Help Desk at (707) 826-HELP (4357).
