This year the CDU has funded a significant upgrade to Learnline by purchasing the very latest version of Blackboard. Join the staff information session on Friday 9 May from 12pm to 1pm to find out more.
Some of the major new features and enhancements that will be available for you to use in Blackboard version 8 include:
- A new Grade Centre (replacing Gradebook)
- Improved features in the Discussion Board, including the ability to grade forums
- A new Early Warning System to flag students who are not engaging with the unit.
The start of semester two 2008 will see the introduction of Blackboard v8 across CDU. Please note that semester one units will continue in the current version of Blackboard (v6.3) until the end of semester one 2008.
