*Note: When you click on the course template, you will be able to view most of its contents (except sample lecture) without importing it. This should help you determine whether you would like to import the template into your own shell. If you opt to import it into your own course shell, content will remain the same, but will be organized in a way that makes it slightly easier to navigate. You will also be able to view sample lecture videos that cannot be viewed in Commons due to Panopto permissions.

3. If you decide to import the Teaching Center course template, click on the Import/Download button the left side of your screen.
