New Bb Learn Course Template

With the move to go virtual, and in response to student feedback for greater consistency across courses, we revised the standard Blackboard Learn course template. There is also a new Zoom integration. Check it out. 

Here’s what’s new. 

  1. Renamed Welcome to Home, and added placeholders for your course introduction. 

  2. Renamed Course Materials to Class Content.

  3. Added Zoom to the course menu and added support materials.  

  4. Added a Discussion Board tool link to the course menu and included a Class Cafe forum.

  • New instructors: pick either the folder or learning module to organize content. 
  • Existing instructors: rename your existing Course Materials to Class Content. Add learning outcomes.
