GETTING STARTED


Blackboard is an online learning environment where instructors and students interact. Courses are available 4 - 6 weeks before classes begin, or within 48 hours of requesting a Course Shell. Only classes for which you are the "faculty of record" will be listed. If your classes are not listed by that time, visit the Technology Support Help Desk and request assistance.



Create an online space for your class by requesting a Course Shell from the UTEP Technology Support Help Desk. Once a shell has been created, you can access your Blackboard course through the My.UTEP Portal.

 

• Send messages and emails to your students.
• Upload assignments and documents for your students.
• Create online discussion groups, quizzes, and tests.
• Create a custom Course Shell for your class.

SUBMITTING GRADES TO GOLDMINE


Submit your grades into the UTEP Goldmine system directly from your Blackboard courses. Grades are submitted using the usual (90-100=A) grading scheme. If your class is using a different grading scheme, use the PDF below for instructions on adjusting it.
