Online Course Development:

The Center for Active Engagement and Scholarship is happy to assist you as you develop your online course. Please contact Blackboard Support 708.534.4115 or fill out the Faculty Training Request form to arrange a time to meet with an Instructional Developer to develop, organize, and add materials to your course.

Blackboard Shell:

Shells for all GSU courses are automatically created for the new semester, approximately several weeks prior to the start of classes. If your course is not listed in your Blackboard Course List, but is listed in the GSU Class Schedule, please contact Blackboard Support.

Cross-list Process:

Blackboard courses are created from the Colleague course ID's. Once the Blackboard course creation script is run, all of the courses and instructors are added to Blackboard.

Cross-listed courses are setup by your department. If you would like to request a cross-listed course, please contact your chair or dean.

Request for "Non-Course" Blackboard Shell:

Blackboard course shells may be requested for "academic use" only and are subject to approval by your department. Please review the policy and procedures for requesting course shells for non-course academic use. 

Organizing your Content:

If you would like “quick help” instructions on how to add materials to your course shell, proceed to the Faculty Tutorials page.
