How do I merge courses in Blackboard? Why can't I just combine courses?!

Managing multiple course sections in Blackboard can be tough for instructors. If an instructor is teaching multiple sections of the same course, the instructor either has to send out repetitive communications to each section, or contact their Blackboard Administrator to combine courses.


Our solution allows instructors and administrators to combine course sections in Blackboard.

Instructors may use our Course Stacker software to combine sections of a course within Blackboard Learn.  This tool reduces the number of course sections that an instructor needs to manage within Blackboard and saves hours of instructor time over the course of a semester.


How does it work?

Next, Confirm your selected courses and your resulting course.



With our software, you pick your courses to combine and confirm your selection. It's that easy!
