Blackboard: Customize Posts, Notifications, and Home Page

Many of us, both students and instructors, are enrolled in several, or even dozens of courses. Here are some tips on how to manage the flow of posts, notifications and the courses you see on the home page. To see how you can leverage the post stream from the Dashboard, view the video below. Please note that “@me” option is not enable in the UNE eLearn system.

Additional information about posts and other notifications is also available in this video.

For General Settings, choose from the following options. You are not currently part of any organization, so don’t worry about that. Screen Shot 2014-06-30 at 9.10.41 AM

For individual course settings, check all that you want to keep, and uncheck all you don’t want to see. Screen Shot 2014-06-30 at 9.10.16 AM
