Archived Course Copy Request Form

You may use this form to request that a course be copied if you would like to have all course content from a previous term copied into your new course, if you have a very large course to copy (large courses pose technical difficulties for self-copying), or if the course you wish to copy is no longer active on Blackboard.

NOTE: You must be listed as the assigned instructor in Banner for the new course before we can copy course content into your Blackboard course for you. If you need help to become listed in Banner, please contact the Registrar's Office at 860.768.4594.

Also use this form if you plan to combine multiple sections of the same course into one Blackboard course site. Be sure to specify all course reference numbers (CRNs) accurately within the "CRN" section of the form. Remember that individual sections of the course are also being created automatically. If you are not going to use them, be sure these unused course sites are set to be "unavailable" to your students. A link to instructions for doing so may be accessed below.

NOTE: The new term's course site will be empty and will not contain any copied content. Instructors now have the choice of adding new content, or selectively copying forward content from their previous Blackboard courses themselves using the instructions link below.

Blackboard Course Self-Copy Instructions 

In Blackboard, instructors can copy their own course materials. This allows the instructor to selectively copy just those materials they need, when they need them. When FCLD copies a course, all course content is copied and it may not be done for a day or two depending on the time of academic year. Instructions for self-copying are here: Course Copy Instructions.

Sometimes, however, the course you need to copy from is no longer on Blackboard, but is stored in our archives, which we can retrieve for you, or the course is too large for a self-copy. In these cases, you will need to fill out this form.

Archived Courses:

If you have a course that is no longer current and has been archived and would like to bring it back, we can copy it into a current course or sandbox course.  Please indicate the Destination Course Code (Ex., ART100) or sandbox in the form below. Note that archived courses do not contain user data, grades, etc. They are backups of content only.

Request a Course be Copied:

Use this form if you have a very large course to copy (large courses pose technical difficulties for self-copying), or if the course you wish to copy is no longer active on Blackboard.

NOTE: You must be listed as the primary instructor of record in Banner for the original source course and for the new destination course before we can copy course content into your Blackboard course for you. If you need help to become listed in Banner, please contact the Registrar's Office at 860.768.4594.

Instructors using multiple section courses should fill out a Multiple Section Course Request form prior to completing this form.

If you have questions about using the form or about course copying, please call FCLD at 860.768.4661.
