Course Cartridges


I have course cartridge materials that I would like to import into a master course. What special steps must be taken to ensure that the import process is successful?

Once the master course has been created, the cartridge materials should be imported before any other materials are added to the master course. Otherwise, the cartridge import is very likely to fail.

When I had the course cartridge installed in Blackboard it put a huge picture of the text, the name of the text and the names of the authors over my announcements section.  How do I remove it?

Go to the Control Panel and click Customization, then select Teaching Style. In the adjacent window, scroll down to Section No. 7, Select Banner. Click the checkbox, "Delete this Banner". Finally, click "Submit".

I have tried to copy from my shell course to my actual course and keep getting errors... and when I tried to export, I also got errors. I am using a course cartridge from Course Technology, but I really don't want to have to start all over.

Most course cartridge content is intentionally copy-protected so you cannot copy it. Unless the cartridge manufacturer has specifically told you that you should be able to copy it from one course to another, you will need to get another cartridge import key and use that to import to the actual course before any other changes are made to the actual course. Once the cartridge has imported into the actual course you can add other content and make other changes.
