  • Finding the Right Blackboard Help on the Web

    Finding the Right Resources on Blackboard Learn Help

    When accessing Blackboard Learn Help, whether via a link in your course, a link on the eLearning site, or through a Web search, you may end up at a help page for the wrong version of Blackboard Learn. There are a lot of useful tips and resources on the Blackboard help site, but some searches might take you to an Ultra Course View help page. UNI's version of Blackboard Learn is Original Course View, so double check, when you browse for help, that the help page you're on applies to the Original Course View. Look for a link near the top of the page to determine which version the page addresses and to switch to the Original Course View if necessary.

  • Hosts can Enable Focus Mode in Zoom to Minimize Distractions

    Zoom's Focus Mode

    Utilizing Zoom's Focus Mode can make all the difference to keep your class locked in and attentive. Hosts and co-hosts can have the ability to see their participants without them getting distracted by each other. It also allows for participants to only view their screen's content, but hosts can still share their participants' screen if they so choose. Participants in focus mode will still see their own video but only see other participants' names, their nonverbal feedback or reactions, and hear them when unmuted.

Clicking the score will give guidance to improve accessibility. Use this tool with the Bb Learn built in "Accessibility Checker" to ensure your content is accessible to everyone so they can have the best experience possible. Learn More.
