It’s getting closer to Blackboard module rollover which will be taking place week commencing the 23rd July 2018. All 2018/19 modules will be available from Monday 30th July 2018.
Schools who are adopting a new template for 2018/19 may already have had their 2018/19 modules created. Finalised templates should have been confirmed to LTDS by Friday 6th July 2018. If your school wants to move to a template but did not have it finalised by the 6th July, then please contact LTDS@ncl.ac.uk as this is still possible.
We have a Blackboard rollover document that lets you know what happens with the different areas of Blackboard during rollover including; module content. ReCap recordings, Turnitin assignments and more. This hasn’t changed from previous years, unless you have adopted a new template, but might be a useful reminder.
Finally to ensure you meet the Blackboard Baseline all schools or subject areas should have a consistent layout and easily navigable structure. Further information about how you can ensure you meet the baseline can be found in the Blackboard Baseline document. We have also produced a checklist that you can work through to check if your module meets recommendations.
Please get in touch with LTDS@ncl.ac.uk if you have any questions
