Be sure information is available on Blackboard as promised

If you tell students to access specific information on Blackboard, be sure to check that students can easily find and access it. For instance:

  • If your site structure is complex, add an Announcement linking directly to the content
  • If you have added new information, ensure it is available (or that it is set to be available) by the date promised
  • If the information was used previously with date restrictions, don’t forget to modify the availability dates
  • Also check that the content area and/or folders containing the information is/are available to students
