End of Year Rollover of Modules

At the end of the academic year comes the time to set up new Blackboard courses for next year. New courses are created during the summer months (end July), once the syllabus files have been returned to Academic Records. 

This way, when the next year begins you will have a fresh and empty Blackboard course with new students enrolled (once they register), thus allowing a new cohort to use the course, unaffected by previous students. 

New courses are automatically created for each new academic year. For the academic year 2019-2020, these courses can be identified by the prefix 1920-Course Code (e.g. 1920-MS115, or 1920-1BA1).

Once students begin to register for the new academic year, they will appear in the list of enrolled students on their respective Blackboard courses automatically (within 24 hours). The student registration schedule is viewable online from the Registration Office.

Verify the Rollover of Modules in three steps

  1. Check that your new courses are on Blackboard.
  2. Ensure the Instructor list is correct. Add or remove instructors and teaching assistants as necessary
  3. Populate your course by creating new content, or you may choose to copy content from a previous year.
