When you copy a course, it will keep links to the previous course’s Content Collection folder and will have the same access as the original course. Follow the steps below to copy.

A good practice is to add your files and organize them into folders from in the Content Collection, and then add them to your course. From there, you can easily copy the material later.

Step-by-step guide

  1. Open your course.
  2. From the Control Panel, select Packages & Utilities.

  3. Select Course Copy.

  4. Choose whether to copy your course into a new course or an existing course.

  5. Type the Destination Course ID and  or Browse the list of your courses, and then select which content items you would like to copy.
  6. Under File Attachments, select Copy links and copies of the content.

  7. Click Submit.



Because links to Content Collection items are copied and not physical files, all users must have permission within the Content Collection to view these files. If a user without the appropriate permission to an item selects a link to the item in the course, an Access Denied message appears. 

Instructors must add permission for these users to the item in the Content Collection or the Blackboard administrator may enable the Copy Settings options to automatically edit permissions when a course is copied. Do this by selecting the drop-down arrow next to the folder name in the Content Collection, then click Permissions and give access to those users who need it.
