Copy content across Ultra modules

What is it?

This process allows instructors and support staff to copy content from one Ultra module to another.

What does it do?

You can copy items in bulk or individually to allow you to reuse content across Ultra modules. You can copy items from any module you are enrolled on as an ‘Instructor’ or ‘Support’ to any other module you are enrolled on with those same roles.

  • Copy content from your Ultra Sandbox to any teaching module
  • Also copy content between teaching modules
  • Import content in bulk or individually to specific locations

What should I know?

Step 1: To import items in bulk, click on the 3 dots on the right side of Course Content and select Copy Content. This will open a side panel that will list every course and Organisation that you are an instructor on.

Step 2: Select the module that you want to import content from, and you’ll see a list of the content within that module.

Note: You can copy over anything at the top level of the module (not within any folder or container), or any container. For instance, if you wanted to move one document in a folder but nothing else you can either move the document to be outside of any container in the source course, or copy the entire folder and delete what you don’t need once it has been copied successfully.

Step 3: Tick the boxes of the content you wish to copy then select Copy selected content. Once the content is copied it will appear at the bottom of course content and will be automatically hidden from students. 

Step 4: To import an item at a specific location, hover over where you want the item(s) to be in your course and click on the +, then click on Copy Content from the menu. From there, the steps are the same as above, except that the items will be located where you added them.

Remember, there may be ‘errors’ when you copy content – be sure to read any details provided. Typically, the items import successfully but there are changes from one module to the next. Any changes will be reported as ‘errors’, and Blackboard will explain what the changes were so that you can adjust anything as needed.
