Tip #60: Copying an item from one course to another

Tip: You can copy an item from one course to another without having to use the Course Copy function on the Control Panel.

Here’s how to do it:

  1. Access the course from which you want to copy an item
  2. Go to the Blackboard Control Panel, and click on the Content Area where the item is located
    • For example, if you want to copy a folder that is located in Course Documents, click on the Course Documents course menu link
  3. Click on the Copy button next to the item you want to copy
  4. On the next screen, select the destination course from the drop-down list of courses
    • NOTE: Only courses for which you are an instructor are listed in this drop-down list
  5. Click Browse to find a destination folder within the destination course
  6. Select whether you would like the item to be removed from the current course after it is copied to the destination course
  7. Click Submit
  8. When you receive confirmation via email that the item copy was successfully completed, navigate to the destination to confirm that the item was successfully copied
