eCampus Tips for Instructors & Students


Here are some tips and tricks to help make your eCampus experience easier.

The Course Entry Point is the area where the users will first enter the course. The course entry point of the course can be changed to a preferred Course Menu item. The instructor or course builder can choose an available area from the menu.
  1. From the Control Panel, click Customization > Teaching Style.
  2. Choose Course Entry Point in the Select Menu Style section.
  3. Click Submit.

A smart view is a focused look at the Grade Center that shows only the columns that match a set of criteria. The view is saved for continued use. When the Grade Center includes a great number of students and columns, you can use smart views to quickly find data. Several smart views are available by default, but you can also create your own.

With smart views, you can view the progress of these items:

  • An existing group
  • Student performance for a particular item
  • Individual students
  • Category and status of items
  • Custom combination of attributes
. View Blackboard's Smart Views page for more information.  
Instructors can use the date management tool to adjust content dates. Date types include due dates, availability, and adaptive release dates related to the course content. View Blackboard's Date Management page for more information.
