We had a request come to us through Ask IDT, and to accommodate the request, we modified the University Blackboard template.
Recently we had a question about online syllabi and how they might differ from a syllabus that is designed for paper distribution. In early 2016, the Academic Affairs office distributed a new syllabus template that includes both required and suggested elements. You will notice that the syllabus template, as it stands, is intended to be modified and then distributed in paper form. If you would like to use this template to make an online version of your syllabus, consider making the following modifications:
I’m happy to announce that we have managed to meet all the challenges, and we are now able to offer a university-wide course template for Blackboard courses. This template will be useful for anyone teaching a fully online, hybrid, or flipped course, and it can also be used or modified for face-to-face courses that have a Blackboard component. You can modify the template as you see fit, and it is designed to fit together with our updated menu items in the basic Blackboard course instance that you see when you first enter a new course shell.
