Changing the Entry Point of your Blackboard Course

Do you remember when Blackboard courses opened to the Announcement page?  That was over a year ago when we were still running the old version of Bb.  The new version (9.1) brings you to a different entry page (called Home Page) that includes various modules to help enhance your courses.  While some of you use and love the new module page, many of you have asked if there is a way to change it back.  I am happy to tell you that there is.  This short video will show you just how easy it is to do:  http://ondemand.blackboard.com/r91/movies/bb91_course_customization_entry_point.htm

You can still use the module page, it just won’t be the first page to come up when your students enter your course, but all they need to do is click on the Home Page link in the course menu to access it.  If you choose not to use it you can simply delete it from the course menu, or hide the link from your students by clicking on the chevron next to the link and choosing to hide or delete it.
