Best Practices in Higher Education
Use Blackboard's "Lesson Plans" and "Learning Modules" to organize your content. This
will also make it easier for students to navigate your materials.
Blackboard 9.1 now allows you to enbed links to your assessments (Tests, Surveys,
Assignements, etc.) and
interactive tools (Discussion Boards, Blogs, Wikis, Journals, etc.) directly within
your content area.
When building content (using the "Build Content" drop-down menu), it is usually better
"Create Item" rather than "Create File." Create Item has a text box in addition to
the ability to attach files from your Course Files area.
Remember to use the "Export/Archive Course" function in the Control Panel to create
a backup of
your course site any time that you have made changes that you do not want to risk
Blackboard 9.1 provides many new tools to help you organize your course materials.
