The automated process that produces Blackboard shells for Fall 2022 is approaching! This means the Blackboard courses will soon be available so Instructors can begin preparing courses to teach. The cross-listing deadline is June 15, 2022. Course shells will be available June 22, 2022.
In preparation for this automated process, we ask your cooperation in completing the Colleague cross-listing process for any courses you are planning to cross-list for Fall semester. Reminder: all cross-listings must be approved by the Department chair.
**If cross-listing is not completed by the deadline, the system will create multiple Blackboard shells, which may be confusing to both students and instructors.**
If you cross-list before the deadline, however, there will be only one shell created in Blackboard. This is a better situation for both instructors and students, so that no confusion arises about what shell either instructors or students should be working in during Fall semester.
Please note: Once the cross-listing courses are entered into Colleague, please refrain from making any changes to the "primary course status" of the courses. Making changes to the cross-listed sections after the courses have been created, will also generate multiple courses in Blackboard. Doing so has major implications for Colleague, the Registrar and Blackboard.
If changes occur after June 15, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can make any appropriate adjustments.
Your cooperation is highly appreciated by The Center for Active Engagement and Scholarship! We look forward to working with you for a successful Fall 2022 semester.
