In this course, Patrick Crispen teaches the ins and outs of Blackboard 9 so that educators and trainers can get up to speed in the system quickly—even if they've never used Blackboard before. The course explores customizing a course site, managing users, and adding and organizing content, including multimedia. It also shows how to perform student assessments in the Grade Center, as well as how to communicate with students and encourage participation and collaboration.
What we're going to do in this movie is we're going to show you how to personalize the My Institution page by changing its color palette. Right now, we've sort of got a muted gray and red, but if I click on Personalize Page, you're going to notice that Blackboard has some pre-rendered color palettes that you can choose from. Let me scroll down here. I am going to choose Sandstone. So instead of being gray and red, we're going to have something that sort of tan and teal. So I have chosen Sandstone. I click on it. I can actually see that Sandstone is selected, because it says the current selection is Sandstone.
I can scroll to the bottom of the page or the top of the page and click on Submit. And now I can see that, wow, my color scheme is completely different. Also notice that that top bar doesn't change, the brand of your university or the color scheme, you can't actually change that without something called domains, and that's actually a system administrator topic. To change this back or change it to some other color scheme, click on Personalize Page again and choose a new color scheme. Usually, you'll have something called Current System Theme.
That's the default color scheme for the system. You might also have one named by your system administrator after the name of your institution. So click either Current System Theme or the name of your institution, click on Submit, and you're back to the original color scheme. So there is some bad news. Just like with the modules, your system administrator may need to reset your color palette back to the original color palette whenever there is a major system upgrade. Fortunately, if your palette gets to reset, it's easier for you to change it back--just click on personalize page.
