The easiest way to start building a course is to simply copy from an existing one, and just change its content. LearnDash gives you an easy way to clone your existing courses, lessons, topics, and quizzes with just one click of a button.

Cloning your courses, can be a quick and easy way to get started with building your LearnDash site without the need to repeatedly start over from scratch.

How to Clone My Courses, Lessons, Topics, and Quizzes

Cloning with LearnDash is quick and easy:

  1. Navigate to LEARNDASH LMS, select whether you’d want to clone a course, lesson, topic, or quiz.
  2. Scroll and hover your mouse on the course, lesson, topic, or quiz that you want to clone
  3. Click “Clone” on the options below.

Once that’s done, a status message will appear on top saying that the course, lesson, topic, or quiz was cloned successfully. Sometimes it takes a while for a whole course to be cloned, so you may have to refresh the page a couple of times.

The cloned version will have the title “Copy of” prefixed before the actual title of the course, lesson, topic or quiz.

If you clone an entire course, all associated lessons, topics, and quizzes will also be cloned. Same goes for lessons, topics, and quizzes. Everything below its hierarchy will also be cloned.

After cloning a course, lesson, topic, or quiz, make sure that all the settings that you want and need are still set including featured images, password protection, quiz retakes, etc., to avoid any confusion and mistakes for your users.

At this point in the feature’s development, these are the settings that fail to transfer when cloning quizzes:

  • Quiz Prerequisites
  • Restrict Quiz Retakes
  • Additional Question Options – Question Category

You’d have to go back and recheck these settings on the cloned quizzes. We may implement a fix for these issues in later iterations of the feature.
