Blackboard course content prior to Fall 2021 and templates. If you need to access your past materials, you can download from Blackboard yourself. Note: Some faculty are experiencing error messages when attempting to export full Blackboard courses. Service desk cannot resolve due to instability in the Blackboard system. If you receive an error message, you will need to manually export individual pieces of content, rather than the full course export. You can individually export course content and quizzes. You cannot export assignments. We recommend manually creating assignments and rubrics in Canvas (you can copy paste).
If you are teaching a course you have not previously taught and are looking for previous Blackboard materials, your first step is to discuss with your Chair/Dean. Approved requests will be recorded and the available content manually pulled and shared with you.
