Exporting your course for reusing in a future course

(Strongly recommended) Exporting the course and downloading it to your local computer

  1. In the Course Management section, your home office, open the Packages and Utilities tab. Then click “Export/Archive Course.”
  2. Click the “Export-Package” option. On the "Export Course" page, scroll down to the “Select Course Materials” section and click “Select All.” 
  3. At the bottom right, click Submit.
    Note: While usually a question of minutes and a simple click on the refresh button on the Export/Archive Course page, in rare cases it may take up to an hour for you to see a very long exported course link on the Export/Archive Course page and to receive an email notification to that effect. 
  4. On the Export/Archive Course page, download your exported course by clicking on the link and saving the file to your computer.
  5. To easily retrieve the file in the future, keep the name and save it in a folder you name “Exported Blackboard Courses.”
  6. Lastly, return to the Export/Archive Course page, click on the hidden action button next to the exported file name and select “Delete”. Done!
