Blackboard Team Meeting – January 14th

In attendance: Meegan Willi, Bill Frikkin, Garry Brand, Mark Nordblom, Jose Mora, Eric Kunnen

Semester Start-up

  • Smooth start so far, one issue of a course being unavailable due to a course copy bringing over the settings from a previous semester.
  • Discussion on using dates on courses for automatic available and unavailable statuses.
    • Would manual course availability override the automation?
    • There is a way to set fields to allow instructors to make changes and have those manual edits override the automation.
    • We would not want to use the course end date to close courses – we currently keep courses open until the beginning of the next semester.
  • Reports are not working – individual item tracking and course reports show zeroes.
  • The Photo Roster will update today with new photos. Bill is working on this today.
  • We need to update the important notices which currently indicates that Winter 2013 courses will open January 14th.

Respondus Monitor Pilot

  • Building block is set-up in Blackboard.
  • We need to make sure the building block is working.
  • We also need to reach out to Yumi to find out who is going to do the training for the pilot.

Course IDs

  • Bill has found where in the code the courses are named, and just needs to determine whether the change to the code would create any issues such as creating a second class.
  • The changes are all queued up for next semester.

Action Step

  • Investigate the capabilities of using automation for course availability.
