By default, each semester new Blackboard course areas are automatically created, and go "live" - ready for you to add new content and tools. No course materials will be copied over from old course areas, so if you want to copy over any content that is still relevant to the course you are teaching, you can use the Course Copy feature.
Before you begin, first make sure you have access to the old new course areas you wish to copy your content over to. Click here to view instructions on how to add yourself to new course areas if you currently do not have access.
