Versioning vs. Copying A Course

What is the Difference Between Versioning and Copying?





To make a change to an already created course moving forward such as a course becoming a 3-hour course that used to be a 2-hour course but never will be again.

This is a completely new course but is a copy of another the title and all components can be changed. This may be used as a short cut if registering something like a course already created.


For reporting the course remains as one. Only the new course will be listed in the drop-down list, but the reporting will all still be attached.

Unrelated for reporting. The new copied course and the original course will both show in the drop-down list.
