Edit My Default Settings for Blackboard Open Content

You can change the default setting in Blackboard Open Content so that the defaults are used whenever you create or copy content for your class. You can change the sharing and copyright defaults, and select the educational standards set by your state, district, or school.

Blackboard recommends that you set the standards for your content, but many schools leave the sharing and copyright settings at the current defaults to fully add to the educational repository of Blackboard Open Content.

For more detailed information about each setting, see the Blackboard Open Content help.
