Same question, new semester, how do I print my Blackboard Test?

This question pops across my desk every semester and the best answer I have found is to follow these steps -

1. Open Blackboard using the Chrome browser (if you don’t have it you can download it) 

2.  In test options set your test to “Open in Own Window”

3.  Open the test as if you were taking it.

4.  Go to customize Chrome settings, found on the far right

5.  Select Print and print as PDF so you can save and print or send directly to your printer

Lync – what does it do?

Or rather what does it not do?  This program which loads on many of our computers is an easy-to-use and versatile communication tool.

Available to students, faculty and staff, Lync integrates seamlessly with email, calendar and the ECU address book to allow instant text messages, video conferences, online presentations and more. Lync also allows collaborative desktop sharing for quick project edits and live brainstorming.

One of the most-requested Lync features is the ability to invite non-ECU participants to a meeting or presentation. Click below to find out more or contact OET for assistance!
