Welcome to the Blackboard e-Education platform—designed to enable educational innovations everywhere by connecting people and technology.
All courses created after today (June 8, 2015), will have a new course menu. These changes are slight modifications to the default menu. These changes were made to aid faculty in their course design and provide further resources in the use of Blackboard. For complete details of what's to come, click here: http://www.valpo.edu/blackboard-help/blog/ Faculty always have the option to customize their course menu as they feel is best. *These changes will not affect existing courses.
Don’t forget! VU has a new Blackboard Tutorial Website! This resource will be automatically built in to every course as the “Faculty Blackboard Help” course menu link. Check it out: http://www.valpo.edu/blackboard-help/

Users are unable to upload and embed YouTube videos using YouTube Mashup or Video Everywhere. The uploaded video can be found on youtube.com, but searching for it in the applicable building block returns videos directing users to https://youtube.com/devicesupport.
There is a workaround for this issue. The workaround and further information on this issue can be found here: http://www.valpo.edu/blackboard-help/blog/

Faculty, remember, we will be purging courses older than Fall of 2011 on August 15th. We recommend exporting a copy of any of your courses older than this. Please click this link for instructions.
