Sometimes students submit the wrong file to an assignment area and need to resubmit their work. This walk-through demonstrates an easy way to give students an additional attempt on an assignment when they have already submitted the maximum number of attempts. This is often preferred to clearing attempts since it leave the original attempt intact. In order to do this the student must have already uploaded the maximum number of attempts.
Did you know that you can import existing exams, quizzes, and surveys into Blackboard? For example if you would like to import the academic integrity quiz questions provided by the Office of Academic Initiatives and Integrity (found on TIPS) you can!
When you upload your PowerPoint to Collaborate are you having problems with some of your slides? It may be that there is some content in the slide that is incompatible with Collaborate. There are a few options that you can try to remedy the problem.
A great way to get anonymous student feedback is to create a survey through Blackboard. This allows you to ask students questions about teaching, course materials, assignments, and texts and get honest feedback (since it is anonymous). You can also give students a grade for taking the survey (to ensure student responses). Some instructors use surveys to ask students if they like the text book, the topics in the course, or what topics they would like to see in the future as well as asking questions for research purposes.
There are many different assignments on blackboard that you can use to engage your students. A great example of this is blogs. You can create a “course blog” which looks like Facebook and familiar social media, or you can create “Individual blogs” which posts as single blog entries instead of a list of all the student blogs. All students can see each others’ posts and can interact with one another.
