TEI Workshop – How to Control When Blackboard Content is Made Available to Your Students

TEI Workshop - How to Control When Blackboard Content is Made Available to Your Students

Do you give a pretest for your course and want to prevent student accessing course content until they complete the pretest? Do you want to make supplemental materials available to students who did poorly on an exam? If so, you should learn about adaptive release in Blackboard. Adaptive Release allows you to control the release of content to students based on a rule or rules that you create. You may want to delay revealing content for a student until after the student has achieved a certain score on a particular assessment or until after the student has accessed or viewed another piece of content. Content can also be restricted to specific students. Adaptive release is a powerful tool for creating standalone courses. It can also be used in conjunction with achievements and badges. Topics we will cover include:

  • Share ideas for using adaptive release in your course
  • Create rule for restricting the viewing of an assignment after a specific date
  • Create rule to restricting the viewing of content until passing a quiz
  • Create rule to restricting the viewing of content based on review status restrictions
  • Copy rules
  • Delete rules

Location: HULT 154 (AV center) and LLAC 317 (If you are on the Dunkirk campus and would like to participate, please let me know so that I can make room and connection arrangements.)

TEI Workshop – Getting the most out of your online discussions

TEI Workshop - Getting the most out of your online discussions

Discussion boards are a staple of online courses; however, they can also be very beneficial to face-to-face courses.   As noted in the Mastering Online Discussion Board Facilitation resource guide, there are a number of benefits for using online discussion boards:

  • Builds class community by promoting discussion on course topics
  • Allows time for in-depth reflection- students have more time to reflect, research & compose their thoughts before participating in the discussion
  • Facilitates learning by allowing students to view & to respond to the work of others
  • Develops thinking & writing skills
  • Allows guest experts to participate in the course by posting information & responding to questions (p.2).

In this workshop, we will explore Blackboard’s discussion boards as well as discuss different ways you can use a discussion board in your course. Topics we will cover include:

  • Creating a Discussion Board Forum
  • Creating a Discussion Board Thread
  • Replying to a Discussion Board Thread
  • Grading a Discussion Board Forum
  • Grading a Discussion Board Thread
  • Managing Discussions
  • Searching and Collecting Discussion Board Posts
  • Tagging Discussion Board Posts
  • Rating Discussion Board Posts
  • Moderating Discussions
  • Viewing Discussion Board Statistics
  • Discussing different ways to use a discussion board in a course.
