Tip #3: Combining multiple sections into one Bb shell

Tip: You can combine your students from multiple sections into one Blackboard course shell. This allows you to run a course in one Blackboard shell rather than in multiple Blackboard shells.

Here’s how to do it:
Log into Blackboard and enter the course from which you would like to copy students. For example, if you are combining Section 21 into Section 20, enter the shell for Section 21. Click Control Panel. Click Course Copy.

Type in or browse for the Destination Course ID. The Destination Course is the course into which students will be copied.* Place a checkmark next to Tasks and Enrollments. Click Submit. You will receive an email notifying you that the course copy is complete.

To confirm that the students were copied, enter the shell to which students were copied, click Control Panel, and click List/Modify Users. Click the Search button to view all enrolled students. After you have confirmed that your students were copied to the correct shell, make the other section(s) unavailable so that students will go only to the combined section.
