NIU faculty can now use the Blackboard Faculty Tools (BFT) to combine one or more course sections into a master course in Blackboard. By combining enrollments of related or cross-listed courses, you will save time by managing only one course in Blackboard.
The new master course functionality, which had been previously available only by request, will allow you to:
Combine enrollments of sections for which you're the official instructor of record into a single "master" course in Blackboard.
Manage the master course by adding or removing sections before the semester starts.
