How to 'Course Copy'

From Original to Original or Ultra

To copy content from one course to another,


Access the course you want to copy from.

In the Control Panel, expand the Packages and Utilities section and select Course Copy.

Select the appropriate option:

  • Copy Course Materials into an Existing Course

  • Copy Course with Users (Exact Copy)

If you chose Copy Course Materials into a New Course or Copy Materials into an Existing Course, select the course materials that you want to copy over.

Browse for the Destination Course to Copy the Materials to.

Select the content areas and tools you want to copy


A course copy operation can't be completed if you don't select at least one of these areas: Content, Contacts, or Settings. If you don't select one, a warning appears and Blackboard Learn can't create a new course.

In the File Attachments section, select the option to copy links to:

  • Copy Links to Course Files: No copies of linked files are included in the copy. The copied course will have the same set of links. Those links will point back to the original location of the link defined in the origin course.

  • Copy links and copies of the content: Make copies of linked files, but only those files that are linked. Files within the course's home folder that aren't linked to any content within the course aren't included in the copy.

  • Copy links and copies of the content (include entire course home folder): Make copies of all files in the course's home folder regardless of whether those files are linked to course content.

You need manage permission on an item to include copies of those files. If you don't have this permission, you may be missing some files after the copy.

Select the Folder for Content Collection Files, if applicable.

Select Enrollments to copy the list of users in the course. User records, such as discussion activity and grades won't be copied. User records are only copied if you select the Copy Course with Users (Exact Copy) option.

Select Submit.
