Duplicate an existing Resource or Activity

Home > Moodle Activities & Resources > Duplicate an existing Resource or Activity

This process is ideal for creating more than one, similarly configured activity or resource for consistency of content.

Navigate to the course you want to duplicate a resource or activity in.

Turn Editing on


Locate the item you want to duplicate.

Click the Edit menu for it.

Select Duplicate.


Wait for the item to duplicate- depending on how much content like images are present this may take a little while.

The second/lower listed item is the new one.

Repeat as desired or move your newly duplicated activity or resource where desired.
