Blackboard Ultra: Copying Banner Images From One Module To Another

When you carry out a Course Copy to copy contents over from one module to another, Blackboard currently doesn’t copy the Module Image over. If you no longer have the original module image available, this guide will walk you through how you can extract the module image from one module to use in another.

Step One  – Extract the Image

  1. Go to the module where the original module image resides
  2. Access the Content Collection of the module. There are several ways to do this, but perhaps one of the easiest ways is to click on the plus icon in the Module Content area as if you were going to create some new content. From the menu, you’ll see the option to access the Content Collection
  3. Now click on Browse Content Collection
  4. You can now look through the Content Collection of the module, showing you all available files. What you see here will depend on the individual module, but you should see the name courseBanner. This is the file you want. Hover your mouse over courseBanner and click the right mouse button. A menu will appear, and you can select “Save Target As” or “Save Link As” depending on your browser
  5. From the prompt to save it, change the file name by adding .PNG to the file name before clicking on Save. This will allow the device you are using to understand it’s an image file format

Step Two – Use the image in the new module

This guide will take you through the process of adding a module image:
