Copying a Course
Course Copy in Ultra Course View
When copying between two courses that are both in Ultra Course View, you are actually pulling content into a new course (as opposed to pushing it from an old course). In the new course, click the + icon to add content, then click Copy Content from the menu. You will identify the item(s) you want to copy in the side panel.

If you are copying content from a course in Original Course View into a course in the Ultra Course View, follow the procedure for Course Copy in the Original Course View and push the content to the course in Ultra Course View. Blackboard will convert the content during the copy process.
The Course Copy feature can make an exact copy of the course. This feature can also make a copy of some of the materials to create a new course or add the materials to an existing course.
Access the course to be copied, and
- Click Course Copy located under Packages and Utilities in the Control Panel
- Browse for your Destination Course (a new window will open and you will be presented with a list of available courses)
- Select Course Materials to be copied
- Click Submit
Note: You will receive a confirmation email alerting you that the course copy process has been completed
When copying assessments, like Assignments, graded Discussion Boards, or Tests, be sure to copy the Content Area with the assessment as well as the Grade Center Columns and Settings. For Tests, you need to copy the Content Area, the Grade Center Columns and Settings, and Tests, Surveys, and Pools. If you do not copy all of the required settings, the assessments will not copy to the new course.
