Welcome to the Blackboard e-Education platform—designed to enable educational innovations everywhere by connecting people and technology.
Faculty - These two tools are now functioning normally after running some Building Block updates and installing a patch from Blackboard Inc. These tools are great for recording videos directly inside Blackboard and embedding videos (from YouTube). If you have not used them previously, now would be a great time to create a video and welcome your students before class begins.

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/
