KU's Learning Management System

Import and Export

The export feature in Blackboard packages your course content so that you can import it into another course. This can be used to copy a course site from one university's system to another Blackboard system. The export course feature does not include any user interactions with the course. It only includes the content and the tools.

For more information about Importing and Exporting courses, select from the following:
