1. Course Merge
If you teach multiple sections of a course, or have both graduate and undergraduate students in the same course, it may be easier to combine them into one Blackboard course site, rather than have a separate site for each section. With the merged site, you can post your course material once rather than posting it in each section’s site separately.
Note: This should be done before any activity takes place in the course sites. Please be aware User records, such as discussion board posts, grades, and assessment attempts will not be copied to the new site.
2. Course Augment
There is also the option to do a course "augment" which will maintain all of your original course sites and add one additional master site with all of the students from your various sections. With the course augment option you can use the master site to post course material in one location, and reserve the individual section course sites for assignments or tests specific to each course section.
3. Course Copy
If you have material from a prior semester that you would like to copy into the course site you are setting up, you can call us to do a course copy for you or you can follow the steps at the link below to do it yourself:
Note: You need to be enrolled as an instructor in both the source and destination courses sites in order to perform a Course Copy. User records, such as discussion board posts, grades, and assessment attempts will not be copied. Do NOT copy course enrollments.
