Gobble, Gobble, Eat!

Happy Thanksgiving, all. Hope those of you traveling have an easy, safe trip. For everyone, enjoy counting blessings and getting stuffed with food!

and as we head into the final days of Fall 2013 semester remember that our office will be happy to assist in closing out semester tasks or prepping for Spring 2014 semester needs.


Spring is Here ? ! ?

Well not quite but your spring courses are now available on your Blackboard site.  All courses offered throughout the university automatically have a Blackboard site created for them.

New this semester is the ability to copy your course content directly into your Spring courses rather than submitting a request and waiting sometimes 2 or 3 days for the content to be copied.  Instructions on how to do this can be found at the Blackboard blog or by clicking here.

Contact our office if you need assistance in copying content or would like our office to handle this for you.



A few weeks ago we wrote about Respondus which is test generating software available to all faculty through ECU’s software download site.  This week I received their newsletter which talked about randomizing questions and randomizing answers to help prevent cheating.  This can be done on a test within Blackboard or when creating tests in Respondus.

Respondus also makes it quite easy to import a test from Blackboard for printing or saving as a a word document.
