Help! My New Blackboard Shell is Empty! What to Do?

HelpCPCC Faculty, you may not have noticed that, since summer, new Blackboard semester shells are now empty, i.e., they no longer contain the Official Navigational Template (Course Menu). This is because many, if not most, faculty normally copy a previous semester shell (with content) into the new shell, eliminating the tedious task of deleting the menu and making course copies easier to complete and more accurate. Yay!

However, if you are a faculty member who doesn’t have a previous semester shell with content, or you prefer to use the course menu as a starting point, then this is easy to achieve.  Here are two ways of achieving this:

  1.  Download and Import the official Course Menu, Click here for instructions.
  2.  Manually adding the official  Course Menu, Click here for instructions.
