In this video, we’ll review how to use the Polling and Quizzing features in Blackboard Collaborate.
Here we look at the Assignment tool, the best way to collect student work through Blackboard. This video covers creating the assignment submission space. If you’re looking for information on grading assignments once they’ve been submitted, check out our other video on that topic.
If you’ve added an assignment to a content space in your course site, at some point you’ll need to grade what you’ve collected. This video walks through the process, including looking at and commenting on student submissions online, viewing SafeAssign originality reports, and clearing attempts.
* NOTE: When adding feedback to student work, make sure you click outside your comment on the student’s page to save your comment. If you click directly from your comment to the scoring space, your comment will be lost.
When you click a link to an EBSCO article inside a course site, you’ll be taken to a page that prompts you to log in. This refers to a personal account you’ll need to have created before clicking the article link. Fortunately, creating an account is easy to do.
First, go to the Re:Search portal (http://research.udmercy.edu). Click the Articles, Journals, + Databases tab.
Then, click E (as in Ebsco) to open the Databases + Journals E page.
If you are off campus, you’ll need to log into the library’s off-campus using your TitanConnect user name and password. Click on the Ebsco Databases link to open the EBSCO Choose Databases page.
Click Sign In in the upper right corner.
On the Sign In: EBSCOhost page, click the Create Account link to the right of the Login button.
Complete and submit the form.
Now, when you click a link to an EBSCO journal from inside a course site, you’ll need to log in using the username and password you just created.
Blackboard Collaborate is a virtual classroom tool that lets students and faculty interact in real time using voice and text. Faculty running a Collaborate session can share presentation slides, web sites, or desktop software with students participating in the session. Live sessions can even be recorded for students to watch at a later date.
This short set of videos walks through the basics of launching and using Blackboard Collaborate.
