If you have multiple sections of the same course, it is sometimes helpful to create one Blackboard course and use it for all of those sections. The advantages of this are that it allows you to consolidate your course content into a single location, making it a comprehensive and consistent resource.
This is also a very effective way to integrate the students in both the on- and off-campus sections of your course into a single community-of-practice. They can communicate and collaborate with each other (using discussions and projects) regardless of their physical location.
