Creating Default Settings for Courses

You can create a new course in Blackboard Learn by defining just the course ID and the course name. However, courses have several other settings that control guest access, enrollment options, menu names, button styles, and other components. When you create a new course, Blackboard Learn uses default values for any settings that you do not define.

You can change the default course settings at any time. These changes apply to new courses created after the change. Existing courses do not update their settings when the default settings change.

Any changes made to course settings in an individual course override the default values for that course.
