Click here to watch a short video to learn how to copy content from a previously-taught Blackboard Ultra course into another Blackboard Ultra course shell for the upcoming semester:

To copy content into your Blackboard Ultra course, from the Course Content page, navigate to where you want to add it. Hover over the location you wish to place the content item. Click the purple plus sign that appears. A menu will appear. Click Copy Content.

Create menu with Copy Content highlighted

A side menu will appear on the right. This gives you a list of every course in Blackboard to which you have editor access.

Navigate into the course you wish to copy content from by clicking the arrow to the right. If you ever go too far, click the folder above the checkboxes and choose where you wish to jump back to.

Once you find the content you want to copy, check the box next to it. You may select more than one item to copy. If you check boxes in more than one folder of the course, click the View all button at the bottom to make sure they are all selected. If you mistakenly checked one, you may uncheck it.

Copy Content menu with back folder and View All link highlighted

Click Copy selected content.

Copy selected content button

The item or items will now appear in your course in the location you chose. Depending on the size or number of items you copied, they may take a while to appear. Be aware that any activity you copy will not bring existing student posts or submissions with it.
