Helping Students be Successful in Blackboard

If you are teaching online or using Bb to enhance your face to face classes, here are some good links found in the Student Support Tab, to help students be successful in your classes.
 
Test taking tips
Please let students know that they have to contact you if they have a failed test attempt and see the padlock in the grade center.  Only the instructor can remove the padlock.  Be sure you are linking the test taking tips page so students can review the items prior to taking a test to help them have a successful attempt.
