New Building Block Features Available!

There are two new features available to you in Blackboard Learn, which were added as building blocks this past Friday:

1.  Student View

You now have the ability to view your course with a student view mode that is more accurate than the one you get by switching Edit Mode OFF.

To initiate the Student View, click Course Tools from the Control Panel and then click Student View:

Course Tools and Student View

When you’re ready to exit the student view, click the Teacher View link, which will appear at the bottom of your course menu:

2. Groups Viewer

If you are utilizing groups in your course, this feature makes it easy to see which of your students have been assigned to which groups!

To access the Groups Viewer, click Course Tools from the Control Panel and then click Groups Viewer:

Course Tools and Groups Viewer

You will see a list of all your students, with their corresponding groups indicated on the right side:

List of student names and corresponding group numbers

You will also have two buttons at the bottom of the list, which allow you to either Print the list, or Download it as a spreadsheet file!

We hope that these two building blocks will improve and streamline your teaching experience in Blackboard Learn.
