Bb for Faculty


This page has links to many helpful videos and written instructions for faculty who use Blackboard. We currently are running Blackboard 9.1, Service Pack 13, so the tutorials are based upon that version. Central Oregon Community College hopes you find this resource a benefit.

Some links will appear in an alternate color; these demonstrate tools from the student perspective.

Grade Center

By default, a course shell in Blackboard is automatically populated with the student data as well as a Weighted Total and Total column. Additional columns are added to the Grade Center when tools such as the Assignment Tool and Tests/Surveys are used. For those items for which columns are not automatically added to the Grade Center, it is possible for an Instructor to add columns manually. The following tutorials outline those column types
