We look forward to opening the spring term by partnering with CAFE to provide timely sessions during the Winter Teaching Academy, January 11th-13th. Most sessions are available via distance and some will be recorded. Several sessions are offered at times specifically designed with adjunct faculty in mind. Join us to connect with colleagues and prepare for the spring semester!

Blackboard Updates for Spring 2018

Two new changes have been implemented to the system. 

Please visit our Blackboard Instructor Help page to learn more about the following:

Changes to Inline Grading

The Crocodoc tool we have been using for annotating Word and PDF Assignment in the Grade Center has been purchased by another company and will be replaced by their tool,  New Box View.  

This change will only affect faculty (and their students) using the inline grading feature of Assignments in the Grade Center.

Blackboard Collaborate Ultra Available for Spring Semester!

When you set up your Blackboard Collaborate session in your spring Blackboard courses, you will be able to choose Blackboard Collaborate (Original) or Blackboard Collaborate Ultra.

The team at AI&e can assist you in course design, professional development, multimedia projects, and test scanning. We also facilitate faculty and student support for UAA's eLearning, ePortfolio, and Robust Online Learning programs.
