View valuable "getting started" information for faculty and instructors who are new to TTU or just new to Blackboard about requesting Blackboard shells, tips on developing a course in Blackboard, training, and how to request a one-on-one consultation with our support staff.
Blackboard Training Sessions:
Request a Development Shell if you would like to RE-CREATE a course or wish to develop a new course in Bb9. Development Shells will have the standard course design template applied at the time of creation. This request will take up to five days to complete. You will receive an email confirmation after the Development Shell has been created.
Request a Live Shell in Blackboard which is connected to Banner and auto-populated with all registered students. The Live Shell is associated with a specific semester, so you will need to request a new Live Shell each semester. After the shell is created, you will have the option to copy the content from an existing shell into the Live Shell.
