Copy Your WebAssign-Integrated Course in Blackboard

Copy a WebAssign-integrated Blackboard® course to copy all content and course settings in both Blackboard and WebAssign at the same time.

This feature is not available to everyone and cannot be used to copy another instructor's course. Alternatively, see Copy a WebAssign Course to a New Blackboard Course.

If this feature is not enabled for your institution, you will be asked to complete additional steps after copying your Blackboard course.

Note To request this feature, ask your Cengage representative to enable enhanced course copy.
  1. In Blackboard, copy all course content to a new course using one of the following methods.
    • Copy an entire WebAssign-integrated Blackboard course.
    • Create a new Blackboard course and copy content from a WebAssign-integrated course into the new course.

    If you are manually selecting which content to copy, be sure to include links to WebAssign.

  2. Navigate to the copied content area in your new course.

    The WebAssign links from your original course are shown, but your new course has not yet been created in WebAssign.

  3. To create your WebAssign course, click a WebAssign link.

    Your new WebAssign course opens in a new tab.

    All dates in your new WebAssign course are inferred from the course start and end date.

  4. Review and adjust assignment dates and course settings as needed.
Note If your course does not open, this feature is not enabled and you must complete these additional steps.
