Course Copy Request
CTELT staff will be happy to copy an existing Bb course site into one or more new, empty Bb shells. This copying will include course content, discussion boards (minus posts from previous students), quizzes, assignments, gradebook items, etc. Note: If you have also requested that one or more course sites be merged into one, please wait until this is complete before requesting course copies, to avoid confusion.

Submit a course copy request:
 
1. Go to https://requestcat.fhsu.edu
2. Log into the site with your TigerTracks account
3. Click New Ticket and Course Copy Requests
4. Complete the form (choosing your “from” and “to” Bb sites) and Submit.
5. Within 1 business day you will receive notification that your course has been copied.
Note: If you are merging two or more sections into one Bb shell, please submit the merge request FIRST, wait until it's finished, then submit a course copy request.
 
About merging two Bb sites into one:
 
If you teach multiple sections of the same course and would like to use only one Bb site for all sections, complete a request to merge those sections.
1. Go to https://requestcat.fhsu.edu
2. Log into the site with your TigerTracks account
3. Click New Ticket and Select Blackboard Course Merging and Enrollment Exemption.
4. Complete the form and Submit
