Preparing your Blackboard Learn Course for the Semester (How-to)

Before the start of the semester, you should get your Blackboard Learn course ready for students. Students begin looking for their course material on the first day of classes and can easily become frustrated if the course is not yet set up or is missing content. For more information, see Best Practices: Course Content.

Reuse Past Course Material

  • For reusing previous course materials in Blackboard Learn you can copy your course content from one course to another, see Course Copy.
  • To update your content dates after you've copied your course, see Batch Edit.
