Blackboard Learn Test Course for AL and REL Faculty
Each Center has a Blackboard Test Course called AL-107 (Center Name) Test Course 201530 01-23-2015. For example: AL-107 Beloit Test Course 201530 01-23-2015. Each Center Director is an instructor in their respective Center Test Course. Center Directors can add AL/REL faculty to the test course and use it in several ways:
- For faculty new to Blackboard – A chance for new faculty to become familiar with Blackboard features such as Assignments (drop boxes), Discussion Boards, Inline Grading, and the Grade Center.
- For a group training sessions – A chance for faculty to have hands on practice during a group training sessions (as scheduled by the Centers).

Several courses now have master templates loaded for faculty and are (mostly) textbook free: MBA 500, 503, 504, 510, 511, 513, 530, 540, 552, 569, 578, 590, 600, and 610. These courses have course content including a student module (similar to AL courses), drop boxes, and grade center already built. In addition, an Instructor Guide is included within the Instructor Resources folder.
At this time course copying and opening of all MBA courses is managed by the MBA Program.
The CELT is currently working on developing textbook-less master courses for OLA courses. When completed the masters will be copied to the live courses like the AL/REL courses.
Until OLA master courses are complete for face-to-face mode, Center Directors can contact CELT for help with copying the e-learning OLA master into the live course as a way to assist faculty with developing the course. However, OLA faculty are responsible for modifying the course for teaching it face-to-face. CELT is available to assist OLA faculty with course modifications.
