Quick Tools

Quick Tools, on your Blackboard home page,¬†gives instructors access to two tools –

1) Course Availability – With one click you can manage the visibility of courses to your students. By switching the status from Off to On the course is instantly visible to the students enrolled. This saves you having to go in to the course control panel of each course and updating the availability.

Please note that this controls the settings for visibility to all students not your own view of Blackboard.

2) Post Announcement – Using this tool you can send the same announcement to more than one course. Select the courses you wish to post the announcement, type the message, select email if required and submit. This will then be posted in all of the selected courses. At the current time the tool only allows for text only announcements and there is no ability to attach files.

If you have any feedback about this tool or any questions please email digital-education@bristol.ac.uk
