There are two ways to build a course in SPARK:
Sections: If you enter SPARK and go into one of the courses listed on the My Blackboard screen, you are building in a section. A section is a single instance of the course that exists for one semester and includes all of the students who are enrolled for that semester.
Templates: If, however, you enter SPARK and click the Content Manager tab at the top of the screen, you can create repositories of files and versions of courses (templates) that can help you more easily manage multiple courses and sections over several semesters.
