In Blackboard 9 Essential Training for Students, Patrick Crispen shows how to get up and running on day one of class and start finding and logging into courses, submitting assignments and importing files, and taking tests. The course also shows how classmates and work groups can communicate in Blackboard with group assignments and email.
In this title, we're going to be using a version of Blackboard that may look a little different than what you see at your institution. We're running Blackboard 9.1 Service Pack 5. It's been available since April 20th, 2011. Your institution may be running an earlier version. That's okay. I'll make sure to point out what's new or different. With relatively few exceptions, so long as your school is running some version of Blackboard 9.1 you should be able to do almost anything you see in these movies. Your institution's helpdesk can tell you what version of Blackboard they're running.
The other thing you'll notice is that my Blackboard screens may look completely different than the Blackboard screens you see at your institution. You see, each institution has the ability to completely customize Blackboard. They can customize login screen, the colors, and layout. Let me actually log in. Once you get into Blackboard they can customize the tabs, they can customize the logo. We've got the State University logo. You can have different tab names. The tabs could be on the left side of the screen, the middle of the screen, the right side of the screen.
Have a complete different color scheme and the layout of these modules may look completely different on your screen. Just because what you see in these movies doesn't exactly match what you see on your institution's Blackboard site, don't let that throw you. For the most part Blackboard is Blackboard.
