Shell Requests

The Shell Request Form must be received by the Center of Distance Learning for each course in which you will use Blackboard at least 14 days (if possible) prior to the start the term in which the course will be taught. The request form must be completed each time you wish to create a new  course or wish to reuse an existing one. Requests submitted after the deadline will be processed as soon as possible but may result in a delay of course creation and population. 

Instructions for Shell Requests Through Faculty Portal

Log In through your faculty portal. When you are in the portal, click on Request Blackboard Shells, and then select one of your courses by clicking on the Course ID.  On the next page you should see a blackboard shell request box, select your template and click submit.  The process takes up to 24 hours to complete.

Blackboard Mobile Learn

Blackboard Mobile Learn has been activated.  That means that you can now access Blackboard through your iPhone, or Droid and you do not need  to be near a WiFi hotspot.  The page is designed mainly for students.  However there are a few things the faculty can do on that page, like create a quiz.  You might want to check that out.  These days students do not watch TV or read the newspaper, but they do look at their cell phone.  So why not join the crowd and give them a quiz on their cell phone?  It is a good way to take first day attendance.
