Get Your Blackboard Courses Ready!

How can I copy my course material from a past course to the current semester?

To help facilitate the process of copying your content over we have provided the following instructions to complete the course copy. If you need any assistance, please submit a Faculty Help Request. When sending a Faculty Help Request, please include the Course ID (Ex: MATH-1301-01-Spring2016) of the course you’d like copied and the course for the material to be copied to.

 

What is a course merge?

Some instructors prefer to combine multiple sections into a single merged Blackboard course. This allows them to post content one time for all students enrolled, rather than posting in each section.

 

How do I merge my courses?

You will need to submit a  Faculty Help Request using the COLTT website. Make sure to provide the Course ID (Ex: MATH-1301-01-Spring2016) for each of the sections you want to merge. Also, identify the course that will be the parent course. The parent course will serve as the primary course where you will post all of your content and grades. 

 

When will my students be enrolled in Blackboard?

Student enrollments will begin being populated in Blackboard 10 days prior to the start of the semester. At this point, updates will be run twice a day to process any add and drops made in Banner/ASSIST. 

 

How do I add or remove users (TA's, students, other professors) in my course?

You will need to submit a Faculty Help Request. Make sure to provide all names, UTRGV email addresses and the course(s) in which they need to be added or removed.
