Your course has been migrated from Blackboard to Brightspace. Now it is time to review it to ensure it is organized, easily navigable, and accessible for your students.
Now that the content and structure of your Blackboard courses has been copied to Brightspace, you may be wondering what to do next.
Please remember that the courses you are seeing do not represent the course shells for future offerings of the course. They are simply your courses that have been copied to the new environment. You will use these copied courses to edit, revise and store your assignments, content, rubrics and quizzes until the actual course shell is available. This will help you learn the new environment while ensuring that your course is organized and easily navigable, incorporates high-quality course design elements, and utilizes Brightspace features and tools efficiently
Once the course shell for the next offering of your course appears in your course list, you can copy your migrated (copied) course components into it.
The information presented here will help to guide your review of your new Brightspace course to make sure it is in good shape to be copied into the new course shell.
It is important that you review all content in your migrated course. Below are five recommendations that will help you clean up your copied course. Please consider using the course cleanup checklist to help you with the review process. It is highly recommended that, at the very least, you delete all unnecessary content and review and update all inaccessible content within your migrated course. The course cleanup checklist and recommendations below will help guide you through this initial and essential course review process.
Once you have accessed your upcoming semester’s copied courses in Brightspace, you should begin to participate in available trainings so that you can learn how to use Brightspace. You will learn how to update your courses so that you can easily copy your newly organized and revised content into your live courses.
It is a recommended best practice to review your courses regularly. Please use the SUNY Online Course Quality Review Rubric to support you with this process.
