This video shows you how to add a banner to the first entry point of your course.
Contacts is a tool where you add profile information about yourself and other staff that is distributed to students. This is a good location to provide information about office hours, phone numbers, and other links to help students find the people who have important roles in the course. Groups of selected contacts can be combined into folders. For example, you could create a folder named Teaching Assistants and assign all TA contacts to that folder.
Announcements post timely information that can improve course success. You can add, edit, and delete announcements from the Announcements page. When you create an announcement, you can also send it as an email to students in this course. This ensures that students receive the announcement immediately even if they do not log in to your course.
The calendar displays a consolidated view of all institution, course, organization, and personal calendar events for a user. You can view events by day, week, or month. You can also view and organize upcoming and past events into categories. Items with due dates automatically appear on the new ClickUP calendar. If an instructor changes a due date, the calendar is updated as well. On the flip side, moving a calendar item (by clicking on the item or drag and drop) simultaneously changes a due date for an instructor. These calendar items can also be exported via an iCal feed to Outlook, Google Mail or other 3rd party calendars such as Groupwise.
You can integrate the clickUP calendar into Groupwise. You can NOT pull your Groupwise calendar into clickUP.
Content Areas are the top-level course areas. They are created and managed on the Course Menu. This documents explain how to plan what the Course Menu will look like.
On this page you will fine information on how to add content on a Content Area, using the following Contet Tools: items, files, learning module, lesson plan, content folders, media files and mashups.
These videos explain how to create and use these Content Tools:
These documents contain a summary of all your Content Tools and a Tools Comparison table:
The Folder View and the Display Course Menu in a new Window options were now combined in one button. This document displays screen caps of the differences.
Messages are private and secure text-based communications that occur within a course and among course members. Although similar to email, you must be logged in to the course to read and send messages. Using the Messages tool instead of the Email tool can also be more reliable. Problems with incorrect or out-of-date student email addresses do not affect course communication.
You can create a Tool Link in the Tools Area through the Content Area. When you include a tool in a Tools Area, you can describe what it is used for, provide instructions for the tool, and attach necessary files. HOWEVER you HAVE to CREATE the tool first in the Control Panel before you make it available for the students through the Content Area.
Content Items are used to present a variety of course materials. The Content Editor enables you to create and format the item’s text and content, as well as incorporate images, multimedia and links to files. This document shows you step by step how to create an Item on the Content Area.
It sometimes happen that the UP portal is unavailable. This document will show you how to log in directly to clickUP.
This document shows you where to see which email adress is used for clickUP notifications and email.
This document describes the differences between email, messages and announcements in clickUP.
The export course feature creates a package of the course content that you can import and use to teach another course with the same content. Unlike the archive course feature, the export course feature does not include any user interactions with the course—it only includes the content and the tools. The archive course feature creates a permanent record of a course including all the content and user interactions. Archived courses are saved as ZIP files. Archiving a course does not delete it from the system.
Use this document to keep track of your exporting and importing process.
An instructor often needs to view a clickUP course as a student to test what students will/ will not see. The Edit Off mode unfortunately only displays how content will be displayed. If you want to see how a test, assignment etc. will display to students, you have to follow the instructions in this document.
This document explains how to make a course available for students. Take note: each year you also have to make the previous year's course unavailable to the students.
This document explains the different possibilities of a module page. Modules are items that include content, links or tools that can be added to personalise a page.
This video will show you how to add and remove modules from your home page as well as how to rename your home page.
The Notifications Dashboard contains four basic modules that give information to users based on their enrollment and their role in the system. Users with multiple enrollments will receive information in modules for all their classes and organizations. Users with multiple roles will receive information in modules for all their roles. Users can navigate to individual items to take action.
This page shows you how to edit the notification settings, create due date reminders, decide on the duration of the notification, and choose the notification types you will receive.
This page provides a very short summary and comparison between the differences of what instructors and students see in the Notification Dashboard.
The instructor has to open a course to students to gain access. At the end of semester / year, the instructor has to close the course again, to prevent students from seeing more than one year's modules. This document provides you with the necessary steps to follow.
This document provides information on how to gain access as an instructor to the courses you wish to use on clickUP. You have to request access to each module you want to teach every semester.
The Email tool allows you to send email to other people in your course from within Blackboard Learn without launching an external email program, such as Gmail, Hotmail, or Yahoo. Email can be sent to individual users or to groups of users. A copy of email messages is sent to the sender by default. IMPORTANT: Blackboard Learn keeps no record of sent or received email. When you receive or send an email, the email appears in the Inbox of your external email program. Keep a copy of important messages in case you need them at a later date.
My Blackboard messages are not the same as course messages or email. You do not have to be online at the same time as other people to send and recieve messages. You do have to be logged into Blackboard to send and receive My Blackboard messages.
You can select which tools are available in your course and which users have access to them. For example, if you will not use the course messages tool, make it unavailable. No one can see it or access it, including you, until you make it available again. On the Tool Availability page, available tools are listed alphabetically.
