Ever wish you had a way to switch all your courses to be Available without needing to find that Yes/No button within each course? Ever wish you could post an announcement to multiple courses at the same time? Then take a look at the Instructor Quick Tools!
Live now on the BbSandbox environment, and coming to the production Blackboard environment here at Palomar starting June 4, 2013 (during our next scheduled maintenance and upgrade window), you can do that and even more. Just look for the link on the My Palomar tab, near the bottom of the list. Click into the “Qwickly” tool, and you will be able to switch any of your courses to become Available, post Announcements to any number of your courses simultaneously, or Send Email to all students in any number of your courses. If you have any student submissions that Need Grading, you’ll see that too.
Head on over to the sandbox to try this out now, or watch the video below to see how simple the Quick Tools are to use. Enjoy!
