Today I received a query from two faculty, who wanted to know how best to transfer materials from one course to another, with an eye towards setting things up for Fall 2010. (Naturally I told them to do a Course Export from one, and an Import Package in the other course.) However, it reminded me that some faculty might be wondering when the next semester Blackboard courses will be ready.
The Summer 2010 courses will be created on the morning of Friday, March 19th. (This, of course, is right around the corner… be ready!) The Fall 2010 courses will be created on the morning of Friday, May 21st – right at the end of the Spring 2010 final’s week, and Commencement Day. This is in keeping with part of our traditional course lifecycle pattern, to create courses 90 days before the semester they’re a part of.
