During the 2014 spring semester (201420), EdTech released the first iteration of a Blackboard course template which built with the goal of helping faculty meet the minimum course presence expectations and Quality Matters (QM) standards. In the spring of 2015 (201520), EdTech updated this template to meet the updated QM standards.
The infographic below details features in the template. You can download a PDF copy of this infographic from this link: Understanding the Blackboard Course Template.
Support staff and resources are available to help faculty in course design, with Bb training, or in meeting the QM standards.
