It is easy to make a course template from a project.
- Go to the project you want to copy.
- Click on the triangle pointing down at the right side of the "Create copy"
- A menu will appear and there select "Create template"
After a few seconds you now have a course template based on the project. You will automatically be redirected to the course template.
In order to do this you need to have sufficient access rights. If you don't have the correct access rights you won't see the copy button or the create template menu option)
