Blackboard - Faculty - Course Admin: Move content inside a course

Blackboard offers the ability to easily move content inside a course. This can be useful when re-arranging and creating subfolders inside the Blackboard course. 

  • Login to your Blackboard course and make sure that edit mode is enabled
  • Make sure that the content destination is created - For example, if you wish to move an object into a folder called Videos, the Videos folder must first be created. See Blackboard - Faculty - Content Creation: Creating and Managing Content for more information on creating and managing content. 
  • Locate the content you wish to move, click the down arrow beside the icon and select Move

The Blackboard Context Menu with Red Highlights around the word Move

  • In the destination course drop-down menu, select the new course location - If moving content in the same course leave as default. 
  • Click the browse button and locate the destination for the object.
