Importing & Exporting a Course

Importing a Course

A course import package is a ZIP file of exported course content. Importing a course package into an existing course copies the content of the package into the existing course. Import packages do not include user enrollments or records, such as discussion board posts and assessment attempts.   

Exporting a Course

The export course feature creates a package of the course content that you can import and use to teach another course with the same content. Unlike the archive course feature, the export course feature does not include any user interactions with the course—it only includes the content and the tools. 


Please consult the Blackboard Help Site for step-by-step directions on reusing content.
