Things taken out of context don’t tend to end well
A Context is a webpage or area of a webpage, saved with unique characteristics, known as Recognition Rules and Context Parameters.
Whenever you capture a Context, you must start by capturing the page. Once that’s done, you can zoom in and create another Context on a section of that page like a link, a button, even just an area.
Follow the steps below to create and save your page Context.
Enter the web address of your LMS application.
TIP! Remember, it is good practice to create everything in your staging environment first. You can use your LMS staging environment too.
Navigate to the page you want to capture. This will be the page on which your message appears or from where your Help Items are accessible.
Enter a relevant title describing your Screen Capture. We recommend using the page name or description.
If you want to create a Screen Capture of a dropdown menu or a popup window in Blackboard, hover over that area and on your keyboard: ctrl + alt + c. You can then close the Capture window.
You will now be prompted to add some rules to this Context.
This is to make sure that your Context is unique and is only triggered under the conditions you define.
The Host relates to the environments in which the Context is active. A checked box will limit the Context to be valid only for that specific environment. We recommend that you tick this box when using your staging environment.
The Path relates to the webpage address of your screenshot. This should always be checked.
The Parameters relate to recognizing features within the webpage address. The parameters define under which conditions this Context is valid. To understand parameters and how they will affect your Context please see our Guide to Recognition Rules and Context Parameters.
