• If you are teaching the same course in the Spring, and want to avoid uploading the same content, export a Blackboard course package then import it into a blank course shell for the next semester.

• If you want to preserve the course structure and the student performance records, make an archive copy of your fall course.

[/toggle_item] [toggle_item title=”Make your Blackboard course unavailable” active=”false”]

We suggest waiting until the second week of January to do this because students may want to login to view their grades after the end of the semester.

On the Home Page of your course, look for the padlock icon on the upper right. Click on it to lock it. This will make the course unavailable to students. If you don’t have a home page, click on any content area (such as Assignments or Course Information) in the course menu, rather than tools or web links.
