3. How to copy contents from the old course to a new course
If you want to have your course's structure, contents, assignments, forums etc. to be copied for new semester, you should first make request for a new course with course request form (if you do not already have that new course).
When you have the new course you can import contents from the old course to the new course. (You should have teacher role on both courses to perform import.)
Contents from old course will be imported without participants (teachers and students) and
without participant data (e.g. returned assignments, sent forum
messages, contents of wiki pages etc.).
