New for Summer 2013

Untitled Document

On May 11, 2013, the UNT System Blackboard Learn administrators updated our system to the most recent service pack Blackboard has released. This service pack includes bug fixes, few new tool enhancements (see below), and introduces a new look and feel. To learn more about the enhanced interface, check out the Look and Feel tip sheet which includes screenshots of the new interface.

Although there will be minor changes to the look and feel of the Blackboard Learn interface, there will be no impact on course organization or content as a result of this service pack installation.


Retention Center
You can detect student problem areas and make corrections
before it's too late. The new course Retention Center in
Blackboard Learn replaces the Early Warning System and
automatically brings attention to student performance and
engagement risk factors and quickly triggers alerts - with
no set up required.

Spend less time organizing your calendar and more time doing what's on it. Consolidate course items into a modern, easy-to-use, personalized view. And export to third-party calendars like Outlook or Google.

Content Editor

No coding experience needed required. The easy-to-use
Content Editor reads, writes and renders modern HTML, making
it a breeze to create rich course materials for your students.

The rebuilt discussions in Blackboard Learn make it simple for
faculty and students to engage in conversations with one
another. This new interface lets students easily follow along
with discussion threads and post replies.

Item Analysis
Item analysis provides statistics on overall test performance and individual test questions. This data helps you recognize questions that might be poor discriminators of student performance. You can use this information to improve questions for future test administrations or to adjust credit on current attempts.
