On July 20th, Blackboard launched the brand-new Blackboard Instructor app. Blackboard Instructor gives faculty access to key tools right at their fingertips and helps them save time, easily connect with students and quickly complete tasks anytime, anywhere.
For more details on the app you can check out Blackboard's help page for the Instructor app.
Here is a video that introduces the Instructor app. Get it today!
Wrapping Up your Semester on Blackboard
It's finals week and therefore a great time to think about the things you can do with your Blackboard as the semester draws to a close.
These two things can go a long way to helping you keep this often important historical information.
First, lets take a look at how we can download the grades from our Grade Center:
The video above also talks about uploading a modified spreadsheet back into the Grade Center. I would not recommend this part of the process. Rather, download your Grade Center as an Excel file and save it for your records.
Next, how can you archive your course material. The following video walks you through all of the export options for your Blackboard course.
I hope you enjoy your Summer!
This comprehensive training webinar is intended for instructors who plan to use LockDown Browser and/or Respondus Monitor with online exams. The session provides a detailed demonstration of both applications, including the automated flagging system within Respondus Monitor. The webinar is 45 minutes, plus a Q&A period at the end.

As the semester stretches into the later weeks the Blackboard grade center can start to get very involved and tougher to navigate. There is a solution! Smart Views are limited displays of Grade Center data based on selected criteria. The Blackboard system generates a number of useful default smart views. Instructors can also create their own by adding a set of criteria that reflects specific student activity and achievement in the course. This tutorial will show you how to create a smart view, set smart view criteria, and add a smart view to the control panel for quick access.
At the left is a two minute video giving you all the tools to use your very own Grade Center Smart Views.
Using Student Preview to Give Your Course a Test Drive
Take a look at the tutorial video below to find out how a Student Preview can help you.
