Importing a course more than once may have unintended consequences. If you import content into a new course, edit the content in the new course, and later import the previous content again, the imported content will override the existing content.

Importing the Core Template will overwrite any content you have entered on the Syllabus page so it is recommended that you import the template before you populate the Syllabus page in your course site.
