The Standards for Quality Online Course Design and Instruction is a document that was developed by the Navarro College Online Instruction Committee and based on nationally-recognized online quality standards.  As you begin working on your Fall 2013 online and hybrid classes in Blackboard, please use this information to make any necessary adjustments and improvements in your courses.


In addition, you may want to move Blackboard course content from a previous semester into a Fall 2013 semester course.  To copy items from one course to another, you can simply follow these steps:

  1. Go to PACKAGES & UTILITIES located in the Control Panel area of your previous course (the one with the content you wish to copy) and select COURSE COPY
  2. In the drop down menu, select “COPY MATERIALS INTO AN EXISTING COURSE”
  3. Using the Browse button, locate the course and section you wish to copy the content into (i.e., the course for the upcoming semester)
  4. Mark the content you wish to copy using the check boxes on the right of each item (or simple click the Select All button) — NOTE: Please DO NOT select Duration Dates and Enrollments!
  5. Click Submit

You will receive an email confirmation once the content has been successfully copied over.

Also, the University of Southern Mississippi has created a brief tutorial on how to copy course materials, and this process is identical to Navarro College.  You can view the tutorial by visiting the following site: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DEfUqbyC0IE
