Recently Blackboard was integrated with Banner and that means that your faculty will have more up to date information regarding their student enrollment within their Blackboard sections. The good news is that with this new integration, faculty can request their shell within 24 hours of being added as the instructor of record in Banner.
To request a shell, the faculty member needs to visit the following website: http://appserv.itts.ttu.edu/BlackboardCourseRequest/default.aspx
After logging in with their eRaider, the faculty member will see a list of courses that they are assigned to in Banner:
Now that Banner and Blackboard are integrated, changing the Instructor of Record can result in lost work for the instructor. A few things to know:
If a shell has been requested in Blackboard the Integration Partner code will appear on the section in Banner:
PLEASE DO NOT REMOVE THIS CODE FROM THE SECTION IN BANNER
If a faculty member is reassigned to a new section or CRN in Banner, and they have already created information within their previous shell in Blackboard, they must contact Karissa.Greathouse@ttu.edu in order to have the information transferred to their new section.
