eLearning Support Webinar: Course Copy


I’m sure that we’ll have a couple other
people pop in as we go. I just wanted to kind of go ahead and get us started with this. So good afternoon, thank you for taking some time to listen to this webinar. for taking some time this afternoon to
listen to this webinar. Just for a little context of what we are doing, I’m
sure some of you all have over the last few weeks, and probably through the
summer, maybe gotten some emails or received some communication from
the eLearning Resource Center about working on some ways to kind of institutionally
better manage the size of the courses in blackboard. So this is kind of one of
our first attempts at making a broader effort to address that so we’ve
sent some individual emails to people to work on some things and have been
doing some things that way, but now we are kind of also offering this series of
webinars to kind of work on this a little bit better and a little bit more,
and then and we will have some others throughout the semester, to also help
address this, but the first one that we are doing today
is on course copying. What you want to copy, what you want to avoid copying, and
we will probably also go a little bit into import and export features in
blackboard and how you can use that as an alternative to course copying, and
some of the different settings and things and we will try to spend some time
going through what the settings mean on the course copy, but also, what things you
might need to look for after you’ve done a course copy to kind of clean up your
course a little bit more as a result of some of those things that we see in a
course copy. And so what I’m gonna do is, I’m gonna share my screen with you here
I’m gonna just work from one of our training development shells and I’ll
kind of take you through the steps to start off of where to find the course
copy tool if you’re not familiar with that, and then we’ll kind of go through
each of the different settings and what that means and
what’s supposed to happen during a course copy and where to look for things
if you can’t find things when the course copy is done, and then kind of get into
some of the other things. And we’ll take some time in-between there to answer any
questions that you might have. I’m sure most of you are at least a little bit
familiar with course copies- you’ve either put in a school dude to have them
done before or you’ve attempted to do them yourself. So, hopefully none of this
will be too unfamiliar for you, but maybe you can get a few things out of it as
well. So I’m going to go ahead and share my screen with you
so you can see what I’m doing. Okay so you should all see a course over here that says blogs,wiki’s, journals in the online
environment so you can get an idea of this is the course we’re going to be
working from for demonstrating this process. So to start off, if you’re
not familiar with where you find the course copy tool, and just a couple of
ground rules for doing a course copy. So you start off of course by going into
the course that you want to copy into an existing course. You’re only going to
have permission to copy courses that you either have instructor access to, or that
you have instructor access to and you can only copy a course into another course that you also have access to. So, a lot of, we have some online lead faculty or administrative department heads
that will ask for access to a lot of courses so they can do this process for
them and that’s something that you want to make sure you have in place before
you do a course copy, is that whoever needs to do the copying has the
appropriate instructor access to do that otherwise they won’t be able to
access the tool. So to start off, to find the course copy tool, is from within
your course. The course management tool menu down here. We should all be pretty familiar with this if we teach classes. You’re going to
select the packages and utilities menu item down here and you’re going to
select the course copy item. It should take you to a page that looks
like this and we will take a few minutes to walk through the different settings on
this page and kind of explain what those are a little bit. The first thing you see
up here is just going to be select copy type. There’s a drop down menu here, but
you will also notice that you only have one available option from that course
menu. So you are going to choose the only option you have which is copy
course materials into an existing course. and that’s because IT typically
develops and they create our blackboard shells before the semester
starts so we’re not creating any new courses we’re just we’re creating or
copying into courses that we already have access to so in this destination
course ID box you’re going to enter the full course ID of the course that you
need to copy into so that’s going to include the semester, 2019FA it’s going
to include the acronym or the letters for the course and including the
section number for it. So, in my case I’m going to be copying into one of my
development shells, and so the name of it is just DEV.Hatcher, but if you were
copying into one of your curriculum courses it might look something like
2019FA.PSY.150.0001 or something along those lines depending on
the type of course that you’re teaching. You’re just going to want to make sure
you input the entire course ID. So, scrolling on down
a little bit further, this is where you see the different settings and options
that you have for copying your course. Typically what we advise you to do, and
what you hear a lot when you call is to probably just select all of the
content. But before you do that we will kind of go through and explain what each
of these items are and what you should expect as you are doing the course copy. So, these items up here the ones that say Content Areas. These are all course menu
items that you have that are on your course menu that have been added and
there may be and if you’ve added any additional ones like, maybe a homework
submission area or things like that all of these content areas are going to
be course menu items that will match the items, the content areas that you have
onto on your course menu so, in this case it’s getting started, faculty
information area, the lessons area, course resources, and things like that. So
anything that you add specifically to your course menu as a
content area that has information in it is going to copy into your course. The next thing that you see here is the adaptive release rules for content.
You’ve all probably been at least a little bit familiar with the adaptive
release rule. We use it to set up at adaptive release on course entry quizzes in in online and hybrid courses. You may use it for other things.
This will allow you to copy adaptive release rules on certain types of
content in the course. Announcements-typically announcements when you do a
course copy, if you select this option all of your announcements will copy over.
You may or may not like that. Student support is not on this screen, and that is because I’m using one of my development shells and it’s not on my course menu. so the adaptive release rules for
content will copy over as well. (Answering a chat question): Yes we typically don’t copy student support, and that’s because it’s pre-populated and it will duplicate when you do a course copy. But we’ll get a lot more into that kind of as we move through it but yeah that’s
it that’s a good point. okay, so announcements like I said if you
choose this option announcements will, all of your
announcements will be copied over. You may or may not want that to happen in your courses, but it will copy all of those over. Blogs and any
communication or collaborative tools will be copied over as well and if you
use the grading activity or you if you grade any of those collaborative tools
like discussion boards or blogs or wiki’s or something like that and you’d
copy the Grade Center information all of that will copy as well. (Answering a Chat question): We have a
question- yes,if you copy over announcements that were set to email out to course will those immediately email out to the new course? No they won’t
-but if you go in to edit those once they’re copied into the new course and
if you don’t uncheck that option it will email them at that point but they don’t
automatically do it when you do a course copy. Okay, so the course calendar will also
copy over. The important thing to notice here is because that course calendar
copies, one of the things and that you have to be aware of and be careful of is
whether you’ve assigned, whether you are copying a course before you’ve made any
changes or updates to it, because it will take all the due dates from previous
semesters with it when you do a course copy. So, if you’re not a person that
works in advance to update all of the due dates for assignments in the course,
students could be confused by seeing some old dates on that calendar. So,
you’ll want to make sure and just be aware of that when you do the course
copy, that if you don’t update the assignments and things that populate on
that course calendar students may see some of those old dates in there. So,
like we were saying before the dates on course item and tool dates don’t change
and along with that any availability for things in your course won’t change
either, so if you copy over announcements, or assignments, that are no longer
available in the old course when you copy them into the new course, they
will not be available either. Okay, so the discussion board is a big one to kind of
keep in in your mind when you’re doing a course copy. You have a couple of options
here for the discussion board. To include only the forums with no starter posts, and
you also have the option to (Answering a chat question):yes the course entry quiz-you’ll want to make
sure that you don’t copy that as well. (Answering a Chat question): yeah if you’re using a development shell
yes, your course entry quiz. You wouldn’t have a course entry quiz in
that shell and that should be pre-populated in the course that you’re
copying into – so yeah that should be fine. Okay, so discussion board forums-I would
encourage you here if you are not wanting, especially if you’re just
copying the course to reuse for another semester to only do a course copy that
includes the forums with no starter posts. If you include the starter posts
for each thread what you’re going to get in a course copy is basically an
anonymous copy of every single submission that was submitted into the
discussion board in the older course. So, it’s easier because you don’t
have to go through the course after doing the course copy to delete those. So, I would encourage you there to choose only the forums no starter posts. Grade Center columns and settings is a
big one. You’re going to want to make sure that you copy this. It will copy any
weighted columns, or columns that you set up in the old course into the new course.
It will also copy the assignments and the graded activities into a new course as
well. So that’s going to be one that you want to make sure for the most part,
that you check to copy that over, and you can make changes once you place it in to
the new course. Group settings if you use group projects and activities in your
courses, those will be copied as well. The names of the groups, if you
setup any specific tool availability for the groups, like group discussion boards,
or group wiki’s, or things like that those tool availabilities will copy, and things like that. All contacts for the course are going be copied as
well, so your instructor information, all of our course shells when they’re
created have some very basic information in it, but when you do a full course copy
from semester to semester that will be one item that you may see that that you
might have to clean up that menu item after the course copy because there will
be some basic contact information in all of our existing course shells. So, grading
rubrics that you created in your course- if you use the blackboard rubrics tool-
will also copy over and if they’re attached to any assignments they would
remain attached to the assignment so you did a course copy as well. Settings for
the course such as the availability, the banner image, things like that, those
things typically do-well our availability of our courses is managed
by IT here so, we won’t be able to copy or make our courses available that’s
managed by IT. So, that won’t be a setting that you have to worry about. And another
thing with regard to the banner image you’ll see the default in most of our
course copies is it’s it’s set to copy the banner image but there’s actually a
little bit of an issue right now where that’s not working correctly so we’ll go
through that a little bit more when we get to the things to look for after a
course copy. So if you use the tasks though, of course tests, surveys and
pools, and wiki’s are again one of those collaborative activities so tests, surveys, and pools. Some of you in the group may have actually received an
email sometime in the last couple weeks about tests, surveys, and pools in your
courses and how those can often get duplicated and of course copy process
and so we’ll go through a little bit of how to clean that up
after the course menu is done, or after our course copy is done as well but
tests, surveys, and pools you generally want to make sure you copy
those particularly, if you if you reuse test questions or reuse tests from
semester to semester. So that’s an important one that you’ll want to
copy. The file attachments area down here at the bottom and the copy links and
copies of the content are pretty much what you’re going to want to use when you do the course copy. It’ll copy the any attachments that you have in files
it’ll keep it associated with content areas or with assignments that they’re
attached to, and other two can cause some access and error issues if
they’re not done so I would tell you to stick with copy links and copies of the
content when you do a course copy. then of course this enrollments area
down here, for your purposes you’re not going to be able to copy the enrollments
but you wouldn’t really want to do that for this for this exercise anyway. So
after you’ve selected the content that you want to copy, in my case I’ll just
copy all of this make sure that I’m not doing the discussion boards and I’ll
tell it and I’ll tell it to just delete my announcements because there’s a lot
in there and I’m probably going to want to start over. I will tell it to
submit-and what you’ll see if you’ve done this at all before is that you’ll
get an email once the course copy has completed. I’m going to go ahead and
switch over to my development shell so we can see and in your development shell
if you’re watching the process work you’ll see a little blue bar that pops
up across the top that tells you when it’s running and
then when it’s complete and you’ll get an email, usually within a few seconds of when it is complete and you’ll see it in this
blue bar here and you can actually access information about the course copy
and whether or not it ran into any issues or errors in the course menu or
in the course copy process. So the things that you’ll notice, we get a
lot of help desk calls about course copies and (Answering chat question)
I think Emily’s got the question about bulk delete (end question) On the help desk we get
a lot of calls, particularly about what happens to content after a course copy
and, people sometimes can’t find things, or there were some duplication, and so
what we’re going to look for there and some things to kind of keep in mind,
if you have somebody asked earlier about the student support course menu item, and
this is a good example to use to explain this. If you have a course menu
item that in one course that is named or, has the same name as the other
course that you’re copying into, any course content item content that’s in
maybe the destination course or in the course that you’re copying from into the
destination course it will copy into that same area and so, that’s something
to be aware of is and it’s often why when we’re doing course copies and you
see things like the student support menu item you go in there you might see
things three, or four, or five times and it gets very long and that’s because
it duplicates its duplicating the content in that Student Support menu
item and so in order to prevent that, and when you’re doing your course copy there
may be things like the Student Support menu item that you don’t want to copy and
if you’re copying, say you’re teaching multiple courses of the same or
different sections, multiple sections of the same course during a semester and
you’re copying from one semester to or one course to the same to a different
course in the fall semester you’re probably also not going to want to copy
the course entry quiz course menu item because you’ll get that course menu
course entry quiz twice if you’re using a development shell that’s not as much
of an issue but anytime you have something just, that’s something you need
to be aware of that you’re not duplicating in the course menu items.
That said, if you have anything or if you have maybe slightly changed something in
the course menu title, the link to the file, or the link to the course menu item,
and you instead of calling it lessons you’re now calling it lessons –
assignments, the content in that lessons folder were in the course where
you copied from will not copy into the lessons – assignments course menu item.
It will create a new item on the course menu called lessons and you’ll have to
work it that way. And so those are just some kind of things to look for and a lot of the course copying particularly as it relates to the course menu items
and the location and navigating the course is going to have a lot to do with
what those course menu items are called. (answering questions): We’ve had a few questions pop up but I
am good I see us talking a little bit about import and export, and I was going
to go through some of the steps and benefits of doing that as well. Okay, so
before we do the import-export, I wanted to talk a little bit about things
in your course menu or in your course copy that you’ll want to check after you
do a course copy. So one of the things that we’ve sent emails out about
recently has been related to the size of our courses and that’s been either due
to content or files in the content collection, but also in part due to tests,
surveys, and pools and the number of those that we had in our courses, and
those are two big things that we’ve we’ve been trying to focus on and do
some individual work with faculty on. So one thing to look for to do that-
and we’ll start with just looking at tests, surveys, and pools, when you do a
course copy from one semester to another and I’m going to use the course entry
quiz as an example for this because not all of our hybrid and online courses
have that built into it it’s really easy to forget to clean that particular
assessment out, and so what we see a lot when we go into course entry quiz is, and
particularly if a course has been copied multiple times, is that it might still
have a course entry quiz in it from you know five or six years ago and it’ll be
there you know, five to ten times for different semesters that the course has
been taught and so, and the way to look at that that you can kind of identify
all the tests, surveys, and pools that you have in a course to begin with is, going
to be go to go to the course management tool menu and if you click on course
tools, and you just select tests, surveys and pools and the tests option, this is
going to show you a list of all the tests and assessments that you have in
your course. So, in this particular example all I
only have a few tests and they’re all deployed in my course right now but, what
happens often in a course copy is that over time not just the course entry quiz,
but quizzes can become duplicated and it might just be because someone made a
slight change to a test, or a test question and they resaved it and they
made a new test, or just maybe just various years of inheriting a course
through different instructors tests get duplicated and what we’ll see is a lot a
large number of tests that have that not currently being used in the course.
And so just to kind of explain what this page looks like a little bit all of this
These here are the lists of the tests and then the second column is indicating to
you whether or not that test is deployed. And like I said all the tests in this
course are deployed at the moment, but if it were not you would see this would all
say “no” so these are not deployed which means currently you just have tests
sitting in your in your tests, surveys and pools area that aren’t being used, or are
not a graded activity in the course. and so usually if it says “no” you can go here
you can usually delete that test pretty quickly without causing any issues in
your course because it’s nothing that students are using at the moment it’s
just kind of taking up space and then it’s kind of important one of the
reasons we’ve kind of emphasized this a lot lately
particularly for the course entry quiz and when you find multiple iterations of
that, is because of the adaptive release and we’ve had we had several phone calls
recently and probably every semester I would imagine, where there are multiple
versions of the course entry quiz in the course and the Grade Center might not
have been cleaned out so they set up an adaptive release on an assessment that
students can’t see-and so it can cause some issues, and so managing this area
after the course course copy can really be helpful for you for a number of reasons and something that you want to make sure
that you look at after the course course copy is done. Another area to look at
this -so tests, surveys and pools we’re looking
at tests now- pools are another item. If you use test pools they often get duplicated a lot as well. We see this a lot probably most frequently in courses
that might have an attendance quiz or a syllabus verification quiz that they
take every semester and it doesn’t really change, we will often see that pool
get duplicated a lot and you can kind of manage this the same way by whether or
not it’s being used at the moment and typically you can tell if it’s not being
used by whether or not you have the option to delete the pool from
this pools area. If you don’t have the option to delete that means it’s tied to
an active assessment in the course. Other things that you want to look through if
you’re not familiar, you’ve heard us talk about the content collection, but you’ll
want to look through the content collection of your course to see if you
have any old content that you’re not using right now that is just been kind
of copied. (Answering a Chat Question): If you haven’t had the option to delete some question pools, it might be so that the that they were being used in active assessments, so you
just might not have had a duplication problem when you did the course copy. So, this is your content collection is a place to look through content to see if
it’s currently attached or tied to any any content in your course and if not
this is another really easy way to check and see if you have any content that you
can kind of use to clean out of your course, as well one other item that you
want to look after the Grade Center excuse me after the copy
is the Grade Center, and whether or not you cleaned out any unused columns
I’m course entry quiz is a good example of that one as well because we have a
new version of the course entry quiz that’s created in all of our courses, a
grade center column is often already created for that in each of our course
shells are not often is always created for that in our course shells so when we
do a course copy from a previous semester, and we copy course or we copy
tests,surveys and pools and the Grade Center information we often copy that
particular Grade Center column as well, and so after you do a course copy you
just want to make sure that you’ve removed any links to assignments and
tests that they don’t need, but also look in the Grade Center to make sure
that those columns are removed as well. and that’ll help with students not being
confused about seeing columns in the Grade Center that that are not
associated with any assignments as well. Okay, so I’m going to jump-if we
have any more questions about the course copying, I’m going to jump a little bit
into doing imports and exporting a course so we can look look at that
process as well. Okay, so the process of importing or exporting a course and then importing it into another course is not too terribly different from from what
from what you do with a course copy there’s a few different
nuances if you will but it’s not too terribly different. There are some
benefits to doing it in that you can it’s a way to copy your content and
share your content without having to give a lot of other people access to
your course, because it it produces a zip file that will that will allow you to- that will allow you to share that with them.
But we’ll go through all those steps. The the difference between a cartridge and a
package a course cartridge is usually something that’s provided by a publisher
a package is usually just it’s the blackboard language for the zip file
that you load into the course typically. If you guys will give me one second
I’m gonna delete my development shell so I can demonstrate the the process of
doing the the export and import for you. so we’ll have a clean slate to get
started. Okay, so to export a file you start off
from the same place or to export your course, you start off from the same place
which is of course this course management tool menu with the packages
and utilities’ area, and you’re going to select the option to export or archive
the course and what you’re going to do up here you’re going to select the
export package option. So you’re going to in the file attachments area, again
you’re going to want to copy links and include copies of the files in the
course default directory and then the file outside of the course
default directory you’re going to want to also copy include copies of the files
outside of the default directory as well I’d encourage you with the export file
when you’re doing this you’ll see an option when you do this to calculate the
size because there will be some if you have a particularly large course which
we’ve seen some over the last over through the Summer really, there will be some export and import limitations so if your course is
too large you may you may run into an issue trying to do this. This course is
going to be fine we are not got going to have any issues. So, from this area you can
again this part of it should look pretty similar to what you see when you did the
course course copy before. You’ve got all the items that you
added to the course menu and then your announcements,blogs, contact information
on the same settings for the discussion board that you might want to copy or not
copy depending on what your what you’re working from, and then of course you’ll
have the settings for availability. Again, that’s still going to be something that’s
managed by IT so that’s not something that you’ll really be able to control so
I’ll uncheck that one and then and then tests, surveys, and pools and wiki’s so
did a lot of the content, pretty much all of the content that you doing an import
it’s gonna behave or should behave the same way and when you’re importing as it
did in a course copy so that would include the availability of assignments,
or announcements or anything like that in the course calendar dates, all those
things that you’re keeping in the front of your mind when you’re doing a course
copy, you’re going to want to make sure are in the forefront when you’re
exporting a course as well. So after I’ve selected the content and the materials
and that I want to do a course copy of or an import of I’m going to click the
submit button and again you’ll see this purple bar pop up and you’ll get an
email when it is complete. So after you get the email you’ll get a link in the email that’ll tell you to go to the – back to your course to look at the
package that was just exported and the package is just the zip file and that
that was created when you ran this process. So you’ll click, you would go
back to packages and utilities’ and you would click the same link or select the
same link export and then what you should see here is a list of any export
files and that you’ve created from this course and so the one that I just
created is down here on the bottom. And so what I’ll want to do is download that
file and you’ll see it down pop up down here in the menu. Okay, and so after I have downloaded that
file I then want to go into the course that I am importing that package into so
I’m going to go back into my development shell and go to the packages and
utilities’ area again, and then I’m gonna select the option to import package then
this button up here that says import package you’re only going to be able to
import it into this course so you don’t have to worry about entering the course
menu there or excuse me the course ID there and then from this area you’ll
select the browse my computer, and you’ll select the export file. And
so you should see the zip file pop-up here in the selected
area. From here on the import section as well, you can choose to come import all
of the content into it or not, whatever you would like to import into the course
you can test surveys and pools the discussion board and then once you’ve
selected the material that you want to import into the course you’re going to
click the submit button once again, and you’ll see it’s taking a second but
you’ll once the package has imported you’ll see the content populate into the
course menu or into the course. And so just like with the course copy
you’ll see the blue bar that pops up that tells you and it’s complete and
whether or not there were any errors, and so if there are any errors in it and you
want to see what they are you’ll be able to access it from the little menu that
pops up and it’ll take you to the import file and again the one I just imported
is right here so I’ll click on that and it’ll show me what any what issues were
and it looks like a couple of these were related to course menu items being named
different things. and so just kind of goes to tell you again if
there’s course menu items just like when you’re doing a course copy and it’s
going to behave the same way so yeah (Answering Chat question) Mike you make a good point it is helpful
for archival really the benefit to doing the import one import over doing our
course copy is that you can share a zip file with some of your colleagues if you
have adjuncts you can share a zip file with them and import it into a course
that way, so it might save you some steps on having to do schooldudes to get
access to all of the courses that you need to do course copies, but that would
probably be one other benefit but course copy is probably you know the easiest
just want that the one benefit would be that you could share a zip file, as
compared to having to get access to all of the courses and in blackboard. okay so the things that you’re going to
look for again after you do an import or into a course are really going to be
very much they’re gonna be the same items that you would want to make sure
you looked for after you did a course copy so information can get
duplicated, and just being kind of aware of what you’re copying and know and
try to kind of prevent that and manage the size and organization of our courses
a little bit better. You can also see when I did this particular import that a
lot of things on the menu did get copied either because the name was different
slightly different, and things like that one thing I didn’t mention earlier which
you all might have noticed, and we did this is because each of our you all will
probably notice when you do a course copy or an import yeah is that your
collaboration menu item will also probably get duplicated-if you have
changed that in any particular way so if you use collaboration – discussions or
instead of just calling it collaboration you’ll also notice that will
probably get duplicated because you’ve you’ve edited the name in some way.
But yeah the recommendation for copying or exporting as Emily said is to
use the select all and then deselect areas you know that you don’t want to
copy me so that might be announcements particularly if you use a lot of
announcements, or certain tests-you can also use import and export sometimes, you
can use the export feature to export individual tests as well instead of
doing full course copies or full copies of all the tests it can be used for
individual pieces like that as well which can sometimes be easier than
copying all the tests you can just copy and share individual tests as needed. So all right any other questions? Those are kind of the big points on that and the the big things to just keep in mind with course copying in general is
to just know how things are supposed to behave when they do a course copy, and
and what to look for so of course make sure your course menu items you’re not
duplicating content within those course menu items so avoid copying things that
are pre-populated like student support the course entry quizzes things like
that, and make sure you look through those things like tests and course
content and things like that after you’ve done a course copy to make sure
that you’re not duplicating. And what causes content collections with multiple
imported folders like that Emily I’m not sure if you have a better answer to that
my assumption would be that when you do a course copy from semester to semester
it’ll often copy the entire content and so when you do a semester a copy from
the spring 2018 into fall 2018 you’ll see both of those folders-and then okay,
I was right,and you’ll see each of the the course copy occurrences in the
content collection more or less. how do you know what you what you can
keep under your content collection after you copy from a dev shell into your new
course and what you can get rid of. Yeah, I think Emily did a good job of
answering that we would recommend that you use your development shell to
prepare your course pretty much entirely and then copy the the course into each
semester from that development shell so if you don’t have a development shell
you can usually just put in a school dude really quick and IT will get
it taken care of you for you. An easy thing to do is just delete it, or have it
deleted at the end of the semester and you can kind of start fresh with each
course that you need. Several years ago Mark is asking several years ago we were
advised to be careful with using course copy-Emily you might have a better
answer for me I’m not sure here when I was here when that advisement came out. Okay, I know a couple of years ago there
was an issue or around the time I started there was an issue,
yeah like Emily said, one course copy was duplicating content when it wasn’t
supposed to, and so we wound up with several courses that had many, many tests
in them that caused some some issues I think it actually it’s slowed blackboard
down quite a bit. yeah- course copy we have a question there
about softchalk it’s perfectly safe you use softchalk the thing that you have to
remember is to make sure that you’re synchronizing the course the
softchalk lessons after you’ve done a course copy. So if you don’t know how to
do that I can actually show you how to do that real quickly. I’ll share my
screen with you again what you do for that is from your course tools menu
again you’re gonna collect select the course tools and scroll down to where it
says soft chalk synchronized copied content, and then you’re going to just
click this synchronize button and that will sync all of the lessons up, so your
students can see them if you forget to do that step, then students will get an
error message when they try to see the softchalk lessons because it’ll still be
linking back to the old course, but after that, otherwise you should be fine any other questions? Great I’m glad you
got something out of it. Yes, pleasedo call the help desk if you need help
we glad to walk you through any of this or send you more information if you need
it.
