Blackboard Tips

Photo-RosterAvailable only to instructors, the Photo Roster tool resents a roster of students enrolled in your course along with basic contact information and a photograph supplied by the ID Card Center. This tool provides the ability to “put a face with a name” as well as develop seating assignments and “meet” online students.
The Photo Roster tool is available within your Blackboard Course Shell, click on Course Management > Course Tools > Photo Roster

Accessibility Tips

Microsoft Word documents are very accessible for students with or without screen readers! A tip in making Word documents more accessible is to use standard headings. This doesn’t mean using bold, or increasing the font size to create individual headings. This refers to using the standard heading styles in Word.
Headings provide not only a visual cue of major topics, but also a means for navigating the document using a screen reader.
