Blackboard tips from the Blackboard mentors

Date Management in Blackboard:

In previous versions of Blackboard, adjusting due dates and availability dates after copying a course has always been a tedious process that was time-consuming for instructors. A new addition to the current Bb speeds that process up considerably.

Date Management allows you to modify all content and tool dates in your course from a single location.

Automated adjustments can be made based on the new course start date, term start and end dates, or an arbitrary number of days.

You also can view all of your start/end dates on a single page and adjust/approve each one.

Supported items include:

  • Content
  • Assessments
  • Tools
  • Manual grade columns
  • Course and organization tasks

Date Management can be accessed on the Control Panel under Course tools. 

To learn more about Date Management with instructions and video, visit the Blackboard Help Page
