Blackboard updates

From Jenny Darrow, Academic Technology:

While we still have some summer left before classes begin we realize that many instructors will be gathering material to post in their Blackboard course. Here are a few things that we hope will help you begin the semester:

  • Student rosters will be loaded into Bb by the end of the day, Monday 8/23. Student “adds” will be updated daily.
  • If you need to communicate with your students prior to 8/23 you can use the Faculty Web Advisor e-mail function, which can be found off of the Keene State home page in the Academics navigation menu.
  • Be sure you make your course available to your students; otherwise, they will not be able to access any content. (Directions for doing this are available at
