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.
Click on the following link to access the detailed Course Copy instructions: Course Copy in Blackboard.
Please let us know if you have any questions or need any assistance by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can also visit the Blackboard Support Page and access additional training documents at TTU Blackboard Training.
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 email@example.com. If you need assistance with Mediasite, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
For all other issues please contact IT Help Central at (806) 742-4357 (HELP) or email@example.com. Thank you for your partnership as we navigate through this pandemic, collaborating to conserve institutional resources where possible.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Regular Maintenance Schedule
The TTU Blackboard Steering Group has reserved Friday morning, 3:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m., each week for system maintenance on the Blackboard Learning Management System. During these periods, the Blackboard system may be unavailable. Should you experience outages outside of these times, please contact IT Help Central at (806)742-4357 (HELP).
