Top Ten ThingsFaculty Should Know All faculty need to use [Bb]; only a few instructors know how to use all features Be organized: keep information current Use the grade book; students know where they stand and it motivates them to do better Use calendar for all class activities and post assignment due dates Keep us informed: use “message of the day” or an “alert” that flags you when new information is posted Post exam reviews & lecture outlines; use voice-over presentations; makes studying much easier

Top Ten ThingsFaculty Should Know Some articles in pdf format take too long to download; use alternative file format Standardize where material is posted: every instructor does it differently and it is hard to find some material Publish and un-publish modules as the class progresses; un-clutter the posted modules Change the opening page routinely to add variety and post interesting web links to other related information

Color Theory Tip 1: Subtle colors are better than bright colors within the course, unless the bright colors are used for a specific purpose Tip 2: Adhere to western color conventions Red=risk or stop Green=go or proceed; environmental Blue=intellectual Purple= regal Yellow=caution or cheerful Tip 3: Use good contrast between menu colors and text Avoid complementary colors (R & G; O & B; Y & P) Avoid colors of similar contrast See: User Interface Design and Evaluation Tip 4: Remember that many males are color blind Tip 5: “Coordinate” banner and menu colors if possible

Visual Enhancements Enhance your course with a banner Free course banner generators Enhance your course with some free images 12 best places to find free images for your course

Legibility Tip 1: Dark text on a light background is easiest to read Tip 2: Sans serif is easier to read than serif Tip 3: 12 point text or larger - always Tip 4: Never use more than 3 fonts or 3 typefaces Tip 5: Use colored fonts sparingly. If fonts are color-coded for a reason, explain the codification schema and stay consistent

Menu Navigation Navigation options Customizing your Blackboard Menu Creating a Discipline-Specific Blackboard Template Buttons vs. Text menus. Which is better? Blackboard’s hierarchical menu vs. simplified menu What course options should be on your menu? What order should menu items appear? Consider multi-language options

Content Hierarchy Tip 1: Label folders and files using a consistent taxonomy Tip 2: Employ content nesting strategies to organize information Tip 3: Provide availability dates where appropriate Tip 4: Rotate content, keeping newest material toward the top Tip 5: Group similar materials and exercises together into single folders Tip 6: Hide content until ready

Scaffold Content Scaffolding Based on theoretical constructs developed by Vygotsky and his concept of zones of proximal development. Also called active engagement vs. passive consumption Employing Vygotsky’s theory, content and activities should build on one another in meaningful patterns Blackboard activities should be released to students selectively. Once mastery has been achieved in one unit, the instructor releases content that builds on the first set of content. Use adaptive release or selectively released content strategies

Course Tools Tip 1: Turn off non-used tools Tip 2: Add the following content regardless of the format: Faculty biographical sketch and complete contact information Syllabus – including course objectives Link to required textbooks or journal articles Tip 3: Add small thumbnails of your texts

Course Content Uploading in native files is fine – IF all students have the requisite software Make files available in two or more optional formats
