Description: Copy one of your previous Blackboard courses into a new Bb course shell. It can take up to several hours to complete the course copy depending on the size of your course and the speed of your Internet connection. DO NOT conduct a second copy. Please contact the Help Desk if you find content missing, or have other issues or questions after the copy.
Note: If you are using the Attendance tool, make sure you UNCHECK it before you copy your course.
