What’s Working? What’s New?

Monday, November 22nd, 2010

There’s good news for CFCC DL faculty. The course copy and course reports features are now working! You can find information on how to use both on the DL Faculty Procedures and Guidelines page.

There’s a new feature available that will make your lives easier. Under the Control Panel in Course Tools, you will see a link for “Add Test Student”. This tool allows you to add your own test student, which enables you to login in with a different username to view your course content from a student’s point of view. Remember, the course must be made available to allow viewing (you can make it unavailable after you are finished if the course is not live yet). Please see Add Test Student in Courses for information on how to use this feature.

It’s Course Copy Time!

Thursday, March 4th, 2010

Course shells have been created for the summer session in Blackboard. It is now time to copy your course content from previous courses into the new shells. Please refer to DL’s faculty resource page to access the How to: Copying Course Content document.

We are also holding special drop-in days devoted to helping faculty with course copies on Mon., March 22 & Tues. March 23 in our S200 office, and at the North Campus Learning Lab on Tues. March 30 from 1 – 4pm.

Finally, please make sure to read our Upgrading to Blackboard 9 document, which will provide you with details about preparing for this change. Have a great Spring Break (although it’s not yet spring).
