Help Has Arrived!
Did you know that students will be able to access all kinds of help
directly through their Blackboard courses just by exploring the
available menu items? Let's breakdown the types of help you can receive
from the two tabs that are highlighted in the image:
Technology Training- When you click on this tab, you will be
brought to Atomic Learning. Atomic Learning is a place that SU users
can go to access all kinds of information about software that you may be
using at this university.
Help & Support- The one-stop-shop for all of your
campus help needs. If you need information about the services that
exist to you as a student, this is going to be an excellent resource for
you. Click Help & Support to read more about all of the information that is contained with the Help & Support menu item
Keep in mind, professors have the ability to hide/delete these menu items as they choose.
Blackboard's New Terms of Service for Profile and Social Features
Blackboard will now request that you agree
to terms of service before allowing you to access your Blackboard
Profile and Social features. Once you click "I have read these terms and
agree to them and am at least 13 years of age." And hit "Agree" you
will receive a verification email at the email address you provide on
the next screen.
This semester, we would love our Bb users to continue to use
Blackboard's Profile and Social tools in new and exciting ways, so make
sure to log on, read the terms of service, and agree to them!
