Navigating Blackboard

A tutorial on how to manage your courses in Blackboard.

Making a New Blackboard Course Yourself

Here is a neat trick you can use if you want to make a new Blackboard course without having to go through CIT.

First go to the Control Panel of a course you are teaching, and click on "Course Copy".

Important! Next, choose "Exact Copy", even if you don't want the same users. The other choices will create courses with no users - not even yourself. The result is a course floating around in space, with no one to care for it.

Choose a suitable ID for your new course. This will be used to distinguish your newly made course from the course you copied it from.

Press the Submit button and you are done! You will have to wait a short while for the copying to take place.

Click on "All Blackboard Sites" to see your courses. Examine the Course ID to make sure that you make changes to the correct version of the course.
