Blackboard are still looking at finding a solution for the existing issue that staff have with a difficulty creating a journal. We have now found a work around that will help you to get ready for the start of term. The process is this:
- In your Sandbox: Create a Journal, making sure it’s not in a learning module
- In your Module: Go to the location that you require it and select ‘Copy Content’ to copy the Journal from your Sandbox
- You can now edit the copied Journal to update title, instructions, grading etc.
Here’s a video overview of the process
Many thanks to Ellie Harrison (DJCAD) who discovered it – and to the others who tested it
A number of staff have reported an error when attempting to create a journal in My Dundee.
It gives an error message, suggesting that you are not enrolled on the Module, and the journal is not created.
CTIL are investigating the issue with Blackboard. We will update you when we have a solution.
