Please Run Identity Finder Scans By September 15th
It is essential that everyone run Identity Finder scans at least once per academic season. September 15th is the upcoming deadline for this scan. Please make sure to include “e-mail” and “M-drive” in your scan criteria. Detailed information about Identity Finder is located at www.ccsu.edu/idfinder.
Blackboard Learn Reminders
Course Shells – are created upon request. They should be requested through Web Central-Banner Web under the Faculty tab. Depending on when the course shell is requested, it may take several hours before it appears in Blackboard Learn.
Combining Sections – if you have two or more sections of the same course, you can request a Merge. A Merge combines two or more sections of the same course together into one course shell. This helps save you time because you only have to create content once. A Merge also combines enrollments from each section into one grade book in Blackboard Learn.
Migrations – if you have older courses in Blackboard Vista and would like that content transferred to Blackboard Learn, please fill-out a Migration Request.
