Canvas Admin: Moving Courses to Another Sub Account

Note that in general, only manually created courses should be moved to different sub-accounts.  If courses created via SIS upload are moved to a different sub-account (e.g., a custom sub-account), they will be moved back to their default sub-account by a subsequent SIS upload.
