"The end of the semester is rarely pretty. You’re tired; I’m tired. You’ve got a zillion things to get done—ditto for me."

Just wanted to let everyone know we are working on the SP17 shell load course name error today. The course ID is correct in that it says SP17 but the course names are reading FA16...we had hoped the fix would be really quick and easy but we ran into a snag. I will post here when we are able to fix this error and re-run the load files. Thanks for your patience while we work on this situation. If you have any questions feel free to call me at ext. 844 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

In a couple of days we will be loading the SP17 shells into Blackboard. I just want you all to be thinking about the fact that some of your links inside your syllabus will NOT be correct anymore due to the changes being made to the ECU website. I have updated the BB Template for this coming semester and have constantly been checking my CETL page links to be sure they are working. Go ahead and use these resources to help you update your syllabus. If you have questions or concerns give me a call at ext. 844 or email me at email@example.com.
I have been asked to post information about Blackboard Building Blocks on both the Faculty CETL pages and the Student CETL pages. So far I have gotten a few done and they are housed under the How To Tabs on both the Faculty Pages and the Student Pages. Over the next week or so I will continue to post more information about each of the B2s on Blackboard. If you have not gone to check out my Student CETL Pages yet here is the URL: http://ecok.libguides.com/cetl_students/main
