Add information about you by entering info in Staff Information,
found in the Control Panel of your class
Start entering Course Information, such as a syllabus and
schedule of work
There are at least three ways to enter information in Blackboard:
You can simply type the text into the provided forms and let it make
the html code for you. If you choose to work this way, it's best
to create your document in a word processor and then cut and paste
You can use html to format you pages. Again, you could just type
the code into Bb's window, but it's best to create the page in an editor
then paste it in. Note that you go not have to include any of the
page tags -- no <html><head><title><body>. The window is the body.
You can put in a code snippet to link to your own website's pages.
This is what I do.
Now I know this may be greek to some of you with less HTML experience.
You will stick to step one and go from there.
Attach a printable copy of your syllabus to the online syllabus.
It can be PDF, Word or RTF.
Create a general discussion Forum for your groups. Call it "Introductions"
Create two small groups and put 1/2 of the students in each. Put
me in both.
Post any questions to the Creating Blackboard forum in our Bb site.
