Preparing for Spring 2014: Things to Remember

Making a Course Available

When you log into Blackboard, the courses are currently showing “Unavailable” to students. Courses will remain unavailable to students until instructors make them available. The system will NOT automatically make courses available to students. Please find instructions on how to make a course available to students in this document: http://webs.purduecal.edu/oit/files/2012/11/How-to-make-a-course-available-to-students.pdf.

Copying a Course

If you have developed your course in a master course shell or have taught a course previously and will teach it again in the spring semester, you can copy the course from the master course/previously taught course to the spring course shell. Please find instructions on how to make a course copy in this document: http://webs.purduecal.edu/oit/files/2012/11/How-to-copy-a-course-from-one-course-to-another.pdf.
