Practice Course Request

You may want to develop course content well before a class is offered or experiment with Blackboard functionality without impacting students. In this case, you can request a practice course from KU IT Educational Technology. This course will not be connected to Enroll & Pay, so you can feel free to experiment with new teaching methods. Content can then be copied or moved to an actual Blackboard course created by Enroll & Pay at a later time if desired.

To Request a Course:

  1. Log in with your KU Online ID to complete and submit the Blackboard Course Creation Request Form ยป.
  2. You will receive an automatic email when an IT service ticket has been generated for this request.
  3. You will receive an email when your new practice course is ready and available in Blackboard.
