Tag Archives: How To

For my colleagues at Valencia who are still adjusting to Blackboard. Here is the advice I got on copying/rolling my courses.  I love having good tech support. Thanks Jenny & Migdalia!


Step-By-Step Instructions below:

1.      Access the course with the content

2.      In the Control Panel, select Packages and Utilities > Copy Course

3.      Click on the BROWSE button next to the Destination Course ID field

4.      Locate and select your course

5.      Select the checkboxes of the content you wish to copy.  You will most likely wish to select all the options, EXCEPT for the Enrollments option.  This is VERY IMPORTANT.

6.      Click the Submit button at the bottom of the page

7.      The copy process will take several minutes depending on how much content there is to copy and current server load.  You will receive an email when the copy has finished copying.  Please be patient and wait for that email, do not start another copy or you will end up with duplicate content.

If you would like to download a free copy of Jing, Click Here. If you are unsure what to do from there, the video below gives a very basic introduction to the process for downloading a copy of Jing.

Be Advised!

Jing will ask you a few questions to create an account, remember you don’t have to go pro. I used my Email address to establish my account, and doing this also established a free Screencast.com account for me.
