Why use course templates?

Course templates are useful if you have several courses with similar structures. If you update content blocks such as images, videos, quizzes, surveys, and HTML-text blocks in the course template by clicking the "Edit button" all courses that use the course template will be updated. However, if you add something new to the course template, this will only affect future courses based on the template. Remember, if you update normal text blocks, this will also only affect future courses based on the template.

Updating materials in course templates

If you update content blocks such as images, videos, quizzes, surveys, and HTML-text blocks in the course template by clicking the "Edit” button (see below), all courses that use the course template will be updated. However, if you add something to the course template, this will only affect future courses based on the template.
