myCFCC Maintenance and Blackboard Availability

June 17th, 2014 by Brandon Davis-Shannon

Hi all,

As you may have seen, myCFCC will be unavailable Sat, Jun 21st between midnight and 6am and Sun, Jun 22nd between midnight and 6am due to maintenance.

Blackboard will still be available during this time, but students will not be able to reach it though myCFCC.  Please provide your classes with the alternative address for Blackboard: https://online.cfcc.edu/ (or reiterate it, if you already have).  This will help ensure that any students who need to work during that time will be able to.

Thank you for your assistance.

Take Care,
Brandon Davis-Shannon
Online Learning Coordinator


Tests and Quizzes in Blackboard

June 17th, 2014 by Brantley McKeithan

Test and quizzes created by the instructor offer a variety of question types.

There is also a survey tool (generally not a graded item) and a Pool Manager, where banks of questions can be stored for use in a test.

Additionally, some publishers have test banks that can be exported to Blackboard and there are third party tools (i.e. Respondus and BYU Test Generator) that can be used to help facilitate test creation.

Creating and Managing Groups in Blackboard

June 16th, 2014 by Brantley McKeithan

 

Course groups allow instructors and students to create groups of students within a course. These course groups have their own area in Blackboard Learn to collaborate on course work, and these spaces are equipped with tools to assist in the collaborative process. If included in a course, the course menu item Groups accesses the Groups page.
