TDM Course Management involves creating, editing, and deleting courses that can be used to create offerings, as well as optionally assigning approved course templates and approved instructors to those courses.

A Course is a single collection of content and activities designed to be offered in one of three modalities: face-to-face, online, or hybrid. A course can be versioned for

  • various time frames.
  • various delivery styles, such as self-paced or facilitated.
  • offerings at various locations.
  • other defined parameters.

Courses can be saved with a template for each version available. A course template is a course that is saved as a template in the Blackboard Learn system. (See Creating a course template for more information.) There may be multiple templates associated with each course in TDM. For example, a course may be offered in 4-, 8-, or 12-week durations and a template for each delivery option can be associated with the course when the course is created.
