Blackboard External Resources
Last page update: January 2016
The Official Blackboard Help Site has many useful resources for Blackboard instructors and students:
- iClicker downloads for instructors (downloads for ver 7, Mac and Windows)
- Tutorials and instructions: These resources may include animated, interactive tutorials or Best Practices Tip Sheets.
- Blackboard Digital Content: "Once separate experiences --- publisher content… open resources instructor-created content….Print, Digital, the learning management system --- are now coming together under one roof. Now you can quickly and easily integrate rich digital content—all from directly within the Blackboard Learn course management system."
To access the videos and tutorials on the Official Blackboard Help site:
- Go to http://help.blackboard.com/en-us/Learn/9.1_SP_14
- Select your role in Blackboard, Instructor or Student
- Click on the topic that interests you in the Table of Contents
From there you may choose from a number of self-study topics to help you master many aspects of using the Blackboard Learning System (Ver 9.1 SP14).
- When you use or view any of the Blackboard Inc. documents, keep in mind that CSM has the Learn version of Blackboard installed; we do not, at this time, have the Community or Content systems enabled.
- Some features that are mentioned in the Blackboard Instructor Manual or other Blackboard Inc. documentation may not be enabled on the CSM Blackboard system. (For example, for course, account and resource management reasons, we have disabled the features that would allow students to create a Blackboard account and would allow instructors to create Blackboard courses.)
