Copying your Blackboard course

New Content Management Features

Copy Course File Attachments

To cut down the number of file attachments that are duplicated during a course copy, a new option has been added to the course copy function for course files. Previously the entire course files directory was included in the package when users elected to include copies of course files. With this new option, users can decide to take the entire folder of files or only those files that are actually linked to course content.

File attachment selections include:

  • Copy links to course files: No copies of linked files are included in the copy. The copied course will have the same set of links and those links will point back to the original location of the link defined in the origin course
  • Copy links and copies of the content: This will only make copies of linked files. Files within the course’s home folder that are not linked to any content within the course are not included in the copy.
  • Copy links and copies of the content (include entire Course home folder): This will make copies of all files in the course’s home folder whether those files are linked to course content or not.
