Request to Combine Blackboard Live Shells

Please read the following important information:

  • Only the Instructor of Record in Banner can request the combining of Live Shells in Blackboard.
  • Blackboard Live Shells will NOT be combined after the semester start date.
  • Combining sections will merge all students into one master shell from which the course content and student interaction will occur. The other shells become “child” shells which will not be visible to the student.


Copy the following table into an email to blackboard@ttu.edu. Fill out each field of information for each of the courses to combine (please use multiple tables for multiple sets to combine). 

Requests with incomplete information will be returned causing a delay in the processing of the request.

Course combine requests need to be completed by Blackboard Support prior to adding course content or copying content into a live course.

Semester: CRN Prefix Course
