When you copy a course, there is a setting to check that effects how discussions are handled. 

With discussions, you have three options:
1.    Do not copy any discussions over
2.    Copy discussions and include starter post
3.    Copy discussions and do not include starter post

You may want to copy starter post if you create a post inside the discussion with instructions/directions for the discussion. But using this setting will also copy student posts if they are new threads. If students reply to your instruction thread then student posts won't copy over because they are not thread starters.

The solution if you have already copied over student posts, is to delete all the posts.
