Programme Landing page in Blackboard

What is a Programme Landing page?

From September 2018, Blackboard will provide students with a programmatic experience by way of a new Programme driven landing page. Programme Leaders will utilise the Programme Landing page to highlight key contacts and topics that they want their students to see. The Programme Blackboard course will still be the repository for teaching and learning content for the Programme but the Programme Leader may choose to surface some of these elements on the Programme Landing page.

Any Programme which has a corresponding Programme Blackboard course, will have a Programme landing page for the staff and students attached to it. Where a Programme does not have a corresponding Blackboard course, the Courses tab will be the default landing page.

The Programme Landing page replaces the old Welcome tab in Blackboard.

What are the different sections?

Users can expand a section or book by clicking on the section.

About the Programme

This section is broken down into various books:

  • Programme Info - a high level overview of the programme
  • Contacts - details of contacts that the Programme Leader has chosen to display
  • Student Reps - details of the Students Reps who support the Programme
  • Careers - Useful information and details of the support available

Your Programme Leader may also add additional books with information of their choice.

My Modules

This is the list of Current Courses and Previous Courses that you also have on the Courses tab in Blackboard.

Updates

The Updates section will display any course announcements and twitter feeds in date order, from the last seven days.

The announcements can be from any of your Blackboard courses including the Programme course. Announcements will still be displayed within each individual Blackboard course.

The Programme Leader will choose which twitter feeds to display.

Assignments

The Assignments section will display the next three upcoming assignment submissions that you have due in the next week. The Coursework tab will continue to display any historic and upcoming Assignments.
