Last (academic) year a survey has taken place regarding the use of the digital learning environment of the UT, including Blackboard. As a result of the outcomes we have applied some changes in the configuration of Blackboard (as of 24 August 2015) - within the options that Blackboard offers. This is done with the purpose of offering a solution for the following frequently mentioned problems:
- For a number of tools an instructor can't see what a student sees (some people are aware of the existence of the faculty test account but consider the use of that account not handy).
- It is not really possible to make certain information in a course publicly available, creating access for people not enrolled in the course or not even having a Blackboard account.
- The Blackboard interface is very cluttered, is it possible to have less tools visible?
In the accompanying document you can read what the improvements are.
