We are still getting a lot of emails and questions regarding the merging of Blackboard courses, so we thought it may help to clarify what the process is.
Blackboard course sections can be merged, which basically redirects the enrollments from two or more sections (“child” courses) into one “parent” course. Requests for merging your courses must be done through the online form which is available on our Blackboard Support site, under the FORMS tab, or directly at FORMS.
The child courses become inactive, but remain available to the instructor, so it is imperative that instructors be very careful to actually work in the correct MERGED course once the merge is done.
Because the staff at SU is off for the holidays the entire time between Christmas and New Years, it is important that you get your requests in by noon on Friday, December 21st, in order that the requests can be processed before the holidays.
As always, if you have any questions, please direct them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
