These short videos and documents are a good place to start with common tasks in the KLE. They are provided directly from the Blackboard On Demand Learning Centre and relate to Blackboard Learn 9.1 as used here at Keele. Please note that not all material held on the Blackboard site will be relevant to Keele as we operate a close integration with our student records system (SCIMS) and have a close integration with Turnitin for online submission of essays.
There are many more titles available via the On Demand website. Once you have looked at what is available there please sign up to attend a 1.5 to 2 hour workshop where you can get hands on experience of developing and working in the KLE.
Some key titles in their series include:-
- Using the Text Editor (Video)
- Getting Started with Course Content (Doc)
- Building a Learning Module (Video)
- Creating a Blank Page (Video)
- Creating a Tool Link (Video)
- Getting Started with the Grade Centre (Doc)
- Getting Started with Building a Test (Doc)
- Adding a URL (Video)
- Creating a Mashup (Video)
