What's New in FerrisConnect?

Friday, January 10, 2014
3-4 PM
Facilitators:  Jackie Hughes and Andrew Peterson

As of Friday, December 13, you will see several improvements in FerrisConnect. In this session you will see how the new features work.

Achievements: The Achievements tool allows instructors to designate criteria for issuing rewards to students in the form of Badges and Certificates.

Date Rollover: After instructors have copied a course, they can speed up the transition of old dates to new ones relevant for the new course using the new Date Management features. From Date Management, all availability dates, due dates, and adaptive release dates can be adjusted.

Grade Center: Blackboard has made several improvements to grading and the Grade Center including grade ordering, “score attempts using”, grading schemas greater than 100%, and more!   

Groups Management:  Groups Management provides the ability to easily see and modify group memberships, import and export groups and group memberships, sort columns, perform bulk actions for deleting groups, create Grade Center smart views for one or more groups on the All Groups page, and manage tool availability for all groups on the All Groups page.
