There will be a few changes to Blackboard for the coming school year. I think that each element will make it things a little easier in Blackboard. There is a piece of Bb that I would like to draw your attention to that may help in managing content across courses and between users.
You will have access to content management (a.k.a.: Content Collection), you can store, share, and publish content in personal, course, and institution folders in the Content Collection, and link to these files in different areas of your course. You can store files you upload to your course in the Content Collection and link to them again. Content can be accessed via the Content Collection tab at the top of the Bb page.
This page will give you access to course content and other content when available.
You will also find your content collection available to you from any course control panel in the Content Collection area.
When you access the content collection area from within a course site you will have access to a personal folder with your MCC username, a folder for the course you are in, a folder that contains content for all the other courses that you are assigned and folders for organizational and institutional content. *If you find that you do not have a personal folder (the one with your username) please let me know.
You can :
- You can store content for multiple courses you teach.
- You can share content across courses and with other users.
- Students may have access to store or share files.
