Perform a Course Copy in Blackboard
You can easily copy content from one course to another in Blackboard, as long as you are enrolled as an instructor in both courses. This can save you time when you teach multiple sections of the same course and/or teach the same course semester to semester.
1. Log into Blackboard
Log into Blackboard Learn through learn.kent.edu or through Flashline.
2. Enter the course that contains content
Click on the name of the course FROM WHICH YOU WANT TO COPY course content.
Note: In Blackboard, you always go to the old course and “push” the content to the new course.
3. Access the Course Copy tool
In the Control Panel, click to expand the Packages and Utilities section. Then click the Course Copy link.
4. Browse for destination course
Click the Browse button. A dialog box will pop up. Select the course INTO WHICH you want to copy course materials (destination course), then click Submit to close the dialog box and return to the Course Copy page.
5. Select materials to copy
Select what you want to copy from this course by selecting the checkboxes. If you want an exact copy of your course, select everything by clicking the Select All button.
Once you've selected what you want to copy, skip past the File Attachments and Enrollments options, then click Submit to perform the copy.
You will receive an email confirmation when your course copy is finished. You can then make adjustments in the new course.
