Getting Started with the Course Environment
The Edit Mode button
allows you to change the
view of content on the
screen. To add or edit
content, turn Edit Mode to
On. To preview content as
a student will see it, turn
Edit Mode to Off.
Breadcrumbs appear at the top of
pages and provide links back
through the path you navigated through to get to the current page.
The course menu includes links to the content in the course. The order of the items in the menu is customizable. It can be arranged by subject or the order in which you would like students to progress through the materials.
A banner image can be included at the top of the homepage for the course, and at the top of any module page added to a course.
Drag and Drop
Content Area and Course Menu can be repositioned to reflect the way you want it displayed. The Drag and Drop Arrows enable you to use the mouse to re-position items on a page by clicking on the item, dragging it to the desired location, and releasing the mouse button.
The Control Panel lets you access the content collection (see more information below); Course Tools and their descriptions and availabilities; Evaluation and its Reports; the Grade Center with student submissions and class overviews; User and Groups Lists management; Customizing the Class, like adding a banner or changing the course theme; Packages and Utilities options like Course Copy or Export/Import Packages; the Help documentation from Blackboard.
It stores the files that are used in course content areas. The content collection acts as a central repository; organize your content by creating folders. You can also upload new files directly to the content collection and link to them if needed.
