Blackboard Tools

Need help setting up your course Blackboard site, or have Blackboard questions? The Instructional Design (IDN) area of the CELT website has many instructional resources available to faculty through their Blackboard section. The IDN section also has instructional pages on accessibility, Voicethread, video, and graphics resources

UAS also has a new Blackboard Tool called Curriculum Builder that enables you to create reading lists that link directly to articles and ebooks from Egan Library within your course site. With this tool, you can also provide links to web resources, as well as add notes for students about required reading in their assigned textbooks or other printed materials. If you are interested in learning about how to use Curriculum Builder, you can review this PDF of Curriculum Builder basics, or email to set up an in-person training.
