Attention Blackboard Faculty

Summer 2021 Live Courses

All Summer 2021 live courses have been pushed to Blackboard.  As new courses are created in Banner, they will also be pushed to Blackboard; courses will not have to be requested.  You can access your Summer 2021 courses at ttu.blackboard.com.

To request your courses be combined, copy and paste the table on the Request to Combine Blackboard Live Shells page and send it to blackboard@ttu.edu.

Additional Blackboard Support

TTU eLearning and the IT Division are happy to introduce an additional support option in Blackboard; the tool is called Eesysoft.  You will notice messages throughout Blackboard with links to support documents and webpages.  You will also notice a question mark and support tab in the bottom right corner of Blackboard.  You can click on that link to access Blackboard support documents and information.

Videos in Blackboard

Due to the current national situation and the major shift to all online teaching, we are working diligently to monitor our limited online resources. In light of this, we are asking all faculty to utilize the Mediasite Presentation function within Blackboard, as opposed to only uploading videos into Blackboard directly. We have sufficient storage within our Mediasite lecture capture system, but limited storage in Blackboard. If you need additional assistance with linking to Mediasite within the Blackboard Learn system, please contact blackboard@ttu.edu. If you need assistance with Mediasite, please contact mediasite@ttu.edu.

For all other issues please contact IT Help Central at (806) 742-4357 (HELP) or ithelpcentral@ttu.edu. Thank you for your partnership as we navigate through this pandemic, collaborating to conserve institutional resources where possible.

NCAA Compliance

Compliant with NCAA requirements, athletic academic advisors have "observer" access in Blackboard for their student athletes. Observer access provides limited view-only course progress and performance information. If you have any questions, please contact the Office of the Provost: eLearning & Academic Partnerships at elearning@ttu.edu.
