  • Announcements page banner, course and menu button organization
  • Announcements pro and con, and how to post Announcements
  • The course roster, and how to add students to your Blackboard course
  • Menu button readability and how to maximize it
  • Changing menu button names, hiding menu buttons, and removing menu buttons
  • Adding Content Area (folder) menu buttons
  • Adding Tool Link and External Link (web link) menu buttons
  • Graphic Page Banners and how to use them to improve visual interest
  • Embedding video segments into Announcements and content pages
  • Installing CutePDF and posting .pdf documents
  • Content and External Link (web link) changes
  • Using folders in content menu buttons, changing item sequence
  • E-mailing students using Blackboard
  • Making courses available to students, copying a course to a new term
You can view the videos on Jim’s website at DePaul.

Thanks for the mention James! New segment is out there too, a prefacing little video that will give any faculty member at least 3 new Blackboard skills in less than 10 minutes.
