Copying Grade Items in D2L

Currently we are aware of an issue where instructors cannot copy gradebook items and/or categories from any previous course offering using Copy Components.  The workaround is to use Export and Import Components functions instead. Learn@UW is pushing for a fix to have the Copy functionality restored for Gradebook items.
