EDU Support Brightspace Instructor Brightspace Information​​​​ Transitioning from Nestor to Brightspace Blackboard Reference Course

Blackboard Reference Course


Blackboard Reference Course

To support the transition of a course from Blackboard to Brightspace, the last offered Blackboard course’s content will be copied to a Brightspace course called “(Bb) <courseName>” with the course code of the copied course.

Usage

This course can be used to copy content to the Brightspace course and is not intended to be shared with students (no student enrollments will be made).

Copied content

Only a part of the Blackboard content is copied:

  • All content areas, containing the lecture slides, text items, etc.

  • Discussion boards

  • Journals

  • Rubrics

  • Tests, Surveys and Pools

What is not copied:

  • User enrollments

  • Student submissions and grades

What is broken:

  • Links to livestreams and video recordings

  • LTI Tools like FeedbackFruits, Perusall, etc.

Content limitations

Due to the content visualization in Brightspace, some of the content from Blackboard may not be visible. Only the first three ‘layers’ of content are shown. An example:

In Blackboard:

  • Content Area “Lecture Slides”

    • Folder “Week 1”

      • Folder “Lecture 1”

        • Item “Slides”

        • Item “Recording”

    • Folder “Week 2”

      • Folder “Lecture 1”

        • Item “Slides”

        • Item “Recording”

This will be converted to the following structure in Brightspace:

  • Unit “Lecture Slides”

    • Folder “Week 1”

      • Folder “Lecture 1”

        • Item “Slides (hidden)

        • Item “Recording” (hidden)

    • Folder “Week 2”

      • Folder “Lecture 1”

        • Item “Slides (hidden)

        • Item “Recording” (hidden)

EDU Support is able to move content to a higher layer, to make it visible again.
