Canvas - Cross-Listing or Combining Courses

This will show you how to manually cross-list or combine courses.

Combining course sites in Canvas is called cross-listing. This is useful if you teach several sections of the same course and only want to manage course data in one location. NOTE: Canvas advises you to not do this with courses that are "published".  Cross-listing courses that have grades results in one of the courses grade books (the child course) disappearing.
