Date Management

Posted on by ckuzmich

Use the Date Management tool to easily adjust all content and tool dates in your course. Accessed on the Control Panel in the Course Tools section, you can choose to adjust dates automatically or individually from one convenient location.

Faculty have been requesting this functionality for some time. It’s now available; continuing reading to learn how you might save yourself time and work by taking advantage of Blackboard’s Date Management tool.

Key Benefit (Why Use Date Management):

Faculty don’t usually start fresh each semester, rather they copy a course from a previous semester and then modify the “new” instance of the course for that semester. In previous versions of Blackboard faculty who used dates for releasing content were forced to navigate to each item in the course and “adjust” the date for each item, one-by-one.

With the “Date Management” tool this can be done from one screen. Faculty who assign dates to content, assignments, tests, etc. can mange the release of everything in their course from one screen.
