Introduction to the Module Control Panel in Blackboard Learn 9.1

  1. 1. Introduction to the Module Control Panel Blackboard Learn 9.1 Kirsten Thompson | University of Leeds
  2. 2. In this tutorial we are going to explore the key features available in the VLE module Control Panel.
  3. 3. The Control Panel is visible to instructors in both Edit Mode ON and OFF. It is not visible to students.
  4. 4. Each section of the Control Panel expands when you select the arrowheads. Let’s look at the key features in each area.
  5. 5. The Control Panel provides quick access to your content stored in the Content Collection. Most instructors will not need to access the Collection; separate guidance is available for those who do.
  6. 6. The Module Tools area provides access to tools to use with your students, including third-party tools such as Turnitin. Assignments submitted to Turnitin can be accessed from here.
  7. 7. The Evaluation area provides tools to monitor student performance. The Performance Dashboard retains a log of the last time and date each member of the module (including staff) accessed the space.
  8. 8. The Grade Centre can be used to keep track of activity both in the VLE and offline. Grades can be shared with individual students via the My Grades tool; be careful not to share summative grades not yet finalised.
  9. 9. Users and Groups provides tools for setting up group spaces for collaborative projects. From the Users area, staff can see everyone enrolled on the module; ad- hoc users can also be enrolled here, but only as a student. Those officially completing the module must be registered properly via other University systems.
  10. 10. Customisation provides a range of tools to assist with designing your module. The Style section includes options to apply a theme, upload a banner and change the colour used in the module menu. The properties area is where module availability is controlled – modules are unavailable to students by default – remember to make yours available when ready.
  11. 11. From the Packages and Utilities area you can download a copy of your module, copy all your content to another module you have instructor permissions on and import third-party content.
  12. 12. The Help section takes you directly to the University of Leeds VLE Support website where you will find further guidance for both staff and students; use the student guides as needed in your own module areas to assist your students. www.leeds.ac.uk/vle
