Beginning-of-semester checklist

What do you need to do to make sure the online counterpart to your course is in tip-top shape for fall?

Kevin Reeve, a Blackboard blog contributor, posted a very thorough “Beginning of Semester Checklist” on Blackboard’s Ask Dr. C’s Effective Practices blog. This list goes through your Blackboard course and pinpoints specific areas you need to be sure to check and modify before the semester starts.

His tips include specific action items in each of the following areas:

  • Updating your syllabus (textbook information, office hours, due dates)
  • Modifying assignments and assessments
  • Updating formulas in the Grade Center
  • Checking course content and links to make sure everything still works
  • And more!
