Q: How do I rollover my course material?

A: The process is pretty much the same, the only change is finding where course copy is located in the new Control Panel.  

Use the guide here:

You may find that you receive an email stating that the copy was successful before the copy has actually finished taking place on Blackboard.  So if you check the course and the content hasn’t copied, give it another 20 minutes or so and check again.

 

Q: How do I add a user to my course?

A: The way you add users to a course is slightly different.  Please follow the guide here:
