If you are looking for a Blackboard site to be set up for an Academic Program, you will require the four character program code for it, as well as the current semester levels of the students who need to be enrolled. Further details are listed at http://www.stclaircollege.ca/blackboard/91/instructors/request.htm.
If you have not yet logged in, your login credentials for Blackboard would be the same as your college staff email, but if you have any difficulty with that part you would need to contact the help desk at ext. 2500.

Looking to enhance one of your Blackboard Courses - we invite you to review the Exemplary Course Program Rubric and familiarize yourself with the criteria.
The Exemplary Course Program began in 2000 with the goal of identifying and disseminating best practices for designing high-quality courses.
The core of the program is the Exemplary Course Rubric, which defines key characteristics of high-quality courses within the framework of Course Design, Interaction and Collaboration, Assessment, and Learner Support. The Rubric is offered under a Creative Commons license, and we encourage you to reuse and remix it as part of your own discussions on quality course design.
Download the Blackboard Exemplary Course Rubric and complete a self-assessment of one of your courses.
