#2- Blackboard Collaborate a Virtual Classroom Tool


Blackboard Collaborate provides a synchronous virutal meeting room that can be used to host sessions such as webinars, guest speakers, or virtual office hours in any Blackboard course. To learn more about session set-up, loading content, file sharing, application overview and other features sign up for a workshop offered by the Instructional Design and Development team.


#1- Copy a Course from One Semester to the Next


The most efficient way to copy a course from one semester to the next is to use the Control Panel, Packages and Utilities, and use the Select All button to copy everything in the course. Just be sure to only do this once or you'll end up with duplicates.

See the Course Copy Quick Reference Guide for full instructions.
