Blackboard provides a tool that allows you to copy an entire course from a previous semester to the new semester. This method allows you to select which areas of your old course (e.g. all of Course Information, all of Course Documents, etc.) will be copied into the new course. If you wish to only copy a single piece of material (e.g. a content item, a folder and its contents), locate the material in the appropriate content area and use the Copy option from the contextual menu for the item.
