Critical Issue: Course Copies and Discussion Board

As you prepare to copy your course materials for the Summer session, be aware of a critical issue regarding course copies and the discussion board. When clicking on the Discussion link for the first time following a course copy, a pop up box (see below) appears asking you to set an author for anonymous discussion posts. Three options are presented. Choose the 2nd option: “No, leave the messages as anonymous.” Choosing the option to add yourself as the author could result in failure of the Blackboard system.

Leave the messages as anonymous.
