Welcome to the new academic year!
Please ensure your Blackboard course is ready for the new academic year, and is accessible to your students, by referring to the checklist below.
If you are a new member of staff, please view our New Staff Checklist in addition to the points below.
Helping Your Students
There are a number of resources you can use to help orientate your students to Blackboard ahead of any assessment. The following power points could be used in your first lecture of the course, or when you discuss the assignment. These help new students understand the difference between Blackboard and Turnitin submitted assignments, and remind returning students which type of assignment they can expect to be using in your course.
