Adaptive Release

Adaptive release controls the release of content to users based on a set of rules you create. The rules may be related to availability, date and time, individual users, group membership, scores or attempts on any Grade Center item, calculated columns in Grade Center, or review status of an item in your course.

Best Practice:

Add Lecturer information (contact)

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

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.

Calendar

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.

Change the Course Language Pack

Language pack preferences are defined at the system level, the course or organization level, and finally at the user level. At the system level, your University defines one language pack as the system default. This is the language pack that appears when no other language pack is specified at the course level or at the user level. At the course level, you can set a language pack and enforce it. Enforcing a language pack means that all users will view the language pack. For example, one possible reason to enforce a language pack's use is for a course teaching that language. If the language pack is not enforced, and a user has a preferred language pack associated with their account, the user’s language pack will override the course language pack. At the user level, individuals may select their preferred language pack, unless a language pack choice has been set to be enforced.

Course Messages in clickUP

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.

Course Reports

You can run several types of course reports to view information about course usage and activity. You can view summaries of course usage including which course areas are used most frequently and course access patterns for specific students. The following course reports are available: All User Activity Inside Content Areas, Course Activity Overview, Course Coverage Report, Course Performance, Overall Summary of User Activity, Student Overview for Single Course, User Activity in Forums, User Activity in Groups.

Send an e-mail from clickUP

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.

Statistics Tracking Items

Item statistics provide you detailed usage information about your content, such as how many times the item was viewed and when it was accessed. Statistics Tracking can be enabled at any time, and will begin collecting data from the moment it is enabled. If users access an item before Statistics Tracking is turned on, their access is not recorded. Statistics Tracking is a type of Course Report for individual content items.

Instructors can post tasks to users participating in their courses, and administrators can post tasks to all users’ Tasks pages.
