Blackboard Update Scheduled for January 2-4, 2014

We will be upgrading Blackboard on January 2-4 to Service Pack 14. With interterm starting the following Monday it is recommended any work on interterm course shells be finished before the 2nd.  

Due to the upgrade there will be exciting new features that are available to you and your students. First and foremost global navigation will be added to allow users to view messages and activities across all of their courses. Instructors will be able to use the inline grading workflow to efficiently grade uploaded course work from students. The retention center will allow you to determine if an at-risk student in your course needs to be entered into our existing retention tool, Retention Alert.

For a full list of new features and software changes please check back soon. If you have additional questions about functionality please contact Dr. Tom King.

What is Blackboard Learn?

Blackboard Learn is our Learning Management System that is used for online and on location courses.

How do I get to Blackboard?

Blackboard is located at http://bb2.doane.edu. You can also access Blackboard using the quick link from either the Current Students or Faculty/Staff intranet pages.

What can Blackboard do for me?

Blackboard will allows instructors to tightly integrate their courses with rich media. Instructors are also able to reach students not only through the browser but also through their mobile phones. Students use Blackboard to digitally submit assignments and tests which aids in reducing our environmental footprint.
