Campaign to increase instructor awareness of basic Course Controls
Accessibility, Instructors, Content, Course Mgmt
The goal is to make sure instructors are aware of the basic Course Controls that Blackboard provides, namely Student Preview Mode, Course Availability, and Edit Mode. These basic functionalities are important to the instructor experience within the LMS.
Instructors are aware of what the Course Controls are, where to find them, and how to use them.
This hint message appears for instructors next to the Course Control icons in the top right of their Blackboard environment. It points out what these icons are and what they are used for.
