What's the difference between copying and migrating a course?


We use the term "migrate" to refer to moving a course from one learning management system to another (From Vista to Bb Learn). We use the term "copy" to refer to moving a course from one semester to another within the learning management system (Bb Learn).

e-Learning can help you "migrate" course content from the old Vista system to the new Bb Learn system. Use this form to make a request:

In Vista, clearing out student data and "copying" courses within the system from one semester to another was a faculty self-service option. In Bb Learn, we feel that the process is too cumbersome for faculty so we are performing that service until the tool improves.

To request that course content be reset and copied from one semester to another, please send a request to elc-help@nau.edu. Please include the following information in your request:

Semester, Course and Class Number to copy FROM

Semester, Course and Class Number to copy TO

EXAMPLE:

  • Copy FROM: Fall 2011 ACC-666 SEC801 (1117-1234)
  • Copy TO: Spring 2012 ACC-666 SEC802 (1121-4321)
