Importing Course Content into Blackboard

You can import course content packages into Blackboard.  If you have exported/archived a previous course, you can import the contents into a new course shell.

A course import package is a ZIP file of exported course content. When you import a course package into an existing course, the content of the package is copied into the existing course. Import packages don’t include student enrollments or data, such as discussion activity and grades.

You don’t want to upload an exported course package that you’ve edited after it was created and downloaded. If you open the ZIP file and change any of the files in the exported course package, the result will be unstable and unpredictable behavior when the course is imported.
