College of Engineering Course Site Transfer Guide

As the College of Engineering transitions from using FSU's Blackboard system ( into using its own FAMU-FSU College of Engineering Blackboard system (, FSU's ODL Technical Support staff wish to streamline and simplify this process for you as much as possible. 

Before you begin:

This process is only for transferring established COE course sites within FSU's Blackboard system. All new courses will be created by system administrators before the beginning of the semester.

Keep in mind:

  • You must submit course transfer requests as individual tickets (one ticket per course site) in order to keep the process straightforward for our ODL Technical Support staff.
  • Due to the amount of work required to bring over a course, we ask that you be selective regarding which course sites you transfer over.
  • Your course sites will retain their current naming convention and course ID (eg., EEL3003-0001.sp16) in the FAMU Blackboard system unless you specify a name or course ID change in your transfer request.

College of Engineering Course Transfer Procedure:
