Migrate a Blackboard Course to Moodle | UNSW Teaching Staff Gateway

Migrate a Blackboard Course to Moodle | UNSW Teaching Staff Gateway | Blackboard Tips, Tricks and Guides for Higher Education | Scoop.it
The Blackboard-to-Moodle migration tool is available, but we would ask you to consider the following:

What will your Moodle course look like? Moodle allows you to apply many more subtle nuances to content, activities and assessments than you could in Blackboard. An automated tool like the Blackboard Migration Tool doesn't know, and cannot suggest, the most appropriate structure for your course once it has been transferred from Blackboard to Moodle. This is something you will need to think through. Learning & Teaching provide educational design support and training to help you do precisely this.

Better Student Planning on the Run -- Campus Technology

Better Student Planning on the Run -- Campus Technology | Blackboard Tips, Tricks and Guides for Higher Education | Scoop.it

This week, during Blackboard's user conference, BbWorld 16, the company is unveiling a pair of products developed with deep input from Northeast Wisconsin Technical College (NWTC). 


The first product, Bb Planner, is a mobile app that allows students to explore degrees and careers that mesh with their goals and interests. Eventually the same app will also enable them to pivot in their degree choices when they realize they're heading in the wrong direction, help them figure out how far along they are in achieving a degree in a new major and even let them sign up for their next course with a single phone tap. 


The second product, Blackboard Advise, is a web-based advising tool that pulls in Planner data and adds predictive analytics to help advisers understand a student's intentions and identify at-risk individuals.
