How to Copy your Course for 3rd and 4th Year Clerkships

If you are a course supporter or course director in a 3rd or 4th year clerkship, you have the ability to copy your course from one rotation to the next. (a.k.a. one block to the next)

Copy from x to y

As an example, let's say you want to copy a course called "Clerkship Block 1A" into the next rotation called "Clerkship Block 1B".

  • Log into Blackboard
  • Go into the course that has content you want to copy.
  • Select Packages and Utilities on the bottom left, below the Control Panel.
  • Click Course Copy


  • For Destination Course ID select Browse.
    • This is where you have to find the course you are going to copy the materials into. (For this example we are copying into Clerkship Block 1B)
    • If you have a hard time finding your course use the search bar. You can change the bubbles to search by Course ID or the Name of the course.

  • Select the course you want to copy your materials into by clicking on the radio button next to it.


  • Click Submit
  • Now we need to tell Blackboard what exactly we are copying.
  • Click the Select All button.

  • Scroll down and make sure that every other option is checked EXCEPT FOR "Availability"
    • We leave Availability unchecked because we don't want the next clerkship to suddenly become available to students if it is not yet ready.
    • You need to manually check Course Guest Access, Course Observer Access, Duration, and Enrollment Options.

  • Ignore all the other options / settings and click Submit
  • Wait for an E-mail notification to let you know the copy has finished.
  • Click into the Clerkship you have copied into to verify the content is now there.
