Your 2016-7 Blackboard Module Templates

Following the SITS Coding project, further work was required to map the enrolments to Blackboard modules. That work is being completed, and in the next 24 hours you will start to see your new academic year module templates appearing in Blackboard.

We appreciate that this is a very busy time in the calendar, especially if you are involved with clearing. To help address time pressures, the TEL Team have scheduled many more workshops. You will find the workshop schedule here.

In these development sessions, you will have dedicated time to copy content to your new modules and also ask questions about your online provision through our Virtual Learning Environment. It is a great opportunity to find out more about what Blackboard can do. To review the structure of the templates, you can access the guides here. Updated guides for the three types of 2016-7 module template will be available at the development sessions and online very soon.

Please note: Whilst we can usually accommodate members of staff arriving without registering, we cannot contact you about changes to venue or cancellations if you have not enrolled onto our sessions.

If you would like to begin copying content from your previous modules to the upcoming academic year, the guide is available through Blackboard help here. Select ‘Creating Content’ from the menu.

We apologise for the delay in your 2016-7 academic year module templates. Thank you for your patience.

On behalf of the TEL Team,

Sarah Copeland
