How to Install Your Course Cartridge
Creating the Course Shell
Before installing your course cartridge key, you will need to create a course shell.
Each course taught within Blackboard must have its own course shell. If you have not created the shell(s) for your course(s), you can create one by using Blackboard’s Course Creation Wizard.
Please follow the steps below to create your course shell(s):
Importing Your Course Cartridge
If this is the first time you are teaching the OnMusic Blackboard course, you will need a course cartridge download key. Please contact Sales at firstname.lastname@example.org if you do not already have a key. (Note: Before installing your course cartridge key, you will need to create a course shell as per the steps above.)
Once you have created the course shell(s) and have received your course cartridge download key, you will need to import your course cartridge.
To import the course cartridge, please follow the steps below:
IMPORTANT INFORMATION: After you have successfully imported the cartridge into your course, we highly recommend you keep this course as your master/backup course. Do not make any modifications to this course. Instead, create a copy of the course and then make your modification to the copy of the ‘master’ course. For instructions on how to create a copy of your course, please access How to Copy Your Course Cartridge. Once your course has been copied or ‘backed-up’, you can then proceed with modifications to the copy of the ‘master’ course.
Teaching More Than One Section of the Course (Multiple Sections)
If you are teaching more than one section of the course, you will need one course shell per section. (To create a course shell, please refer to the instructions (above) on how to create a course shell using the Blackboard Course Creation Wizard.
The first section will be created using the course cartridge download key. Any additional sections will be created by copying the first section and will NOT require a download key. We highly recommend that you configure the first section completely (exactly how you want it) before you copy it. Refer to How to Copy Your Course Cartridge for more details on this process.
