Copying and Importing a Shared Readings & Learning Resources List to a Course

If a colleague has provided you with a shared Readings and Learning Resources list link, you can create a duplicate copy of that list and associate it with your own D2L course.  At this point, the copied list is your own to change or edit as needed for your course.

Duplicating a Readings & Learning Resources link and associating it with a course in D2L:

Step 1:

  1. Open a browser and paste the link provided.
  2. Click on the three dots to the right of the list name to open the List Menu.
  3. Click Duplicate list.
