Q. I’m scheduled to teach this fall semester and need to set up my account so I can upload my materials. Could you please inform me what steps I need to take?
A. Your Blackboard course will be created automatically, once you are assigned to teach the course in LOCUS. Login to Blackboard at https://blackboard.luc.edu using the same username and password that you use for LOCUS; you will see your course listed under “My Courses.”
Visit the “Setting Up Your Course” section of our Faculty Blackboard Help Resources page for instructions in text and video format for uploading materials to your course.
Q. I would like to know if it is possible to make a quiz/test for one class and then share it with other professors so they can add it to their classes?
A. An instructor can export tests from her course using the Export/Import tool. Then she can send the resulting .zip file with the tests to other instructors and they can import the file into their courses. Once they have imported the .zip file, they would need to deploy the test in a content area.
