Changes to Blackboard - Summer 2015



Posted on June 1st, 2015.

CUNY's Blackboard instance will be undergoing a few changes this summer in preparation for the Fall Semester. This page and others linked here will detail you on those changes. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Technology Help Desk.

Course Size Limits

In order to manage Blackboard course size efficiently, the CUNY Central Blackboard Steering Committee has implemented a course size limit policy starting Summer Session 1. Click here for more information http://www.baruch.cuny.edu/bctc/intech/course_size.htm.

Blackboard Course Defaults

For the Fall 2015 semester, BCTC has made a few changes to Blackboard’s default course menu navigation links (i.e., the links on the left-hand side of your Blackboard course).  We believe the menu names will be easier to understand for faculty members and students than the ones provided previously by CUNY Central.  Please keep in mind that as the instructor you can change the menu at any time. i.e., add, delete, rename, hide, or rearrange menu links. Please click here for more information on these changes and for visual guides on how to change your menu.
