New Course Copy Option File Attachments in Blackboard

 

Option 1 does not copy any items from the file manager. This option shouldn’t be selected under normal circumstances. Students would see permission errors when they try to access content that would be housed in the file manager. Instructors wouldn’t see these permission errors since the instructor has access to the source and destination course file manager.

 

Option 2 is the default and preferred option, as it only copies those items which are linked in the content areas. This is the recommended option unless you have existing SoftChalk,  SCORM, Camtasia, or custom created HTML files inside subfolders.

 

Option 3 copies everything in the file manager. We recommend this option for those having existing SoftChalk,  SCORM, Camtasia, or custom created HTML files inside subfolders. Another reason to choose this would be if the instructor is using the file manager for storage and wishes to keep some files even though they are not linked in the course.
