ITDE introduces Blackboard Support Center

BB Support Center

The Instructional Technology and Distance Education department invites you to visit the newly developed Blackboard Support Center, located online at www.llcc.edu/bbsupport. The Blackboard support center has been developed to provide students and faculty with on-demand instruction and support on the use of Blackboard at LLCC.

A link to the LLCC Blackboard Support Center has been added to the Blackboard login page, the Blackboard institutional announcements frame, and Faculty are also encouraged to link to the LLCC Blackboard support center within their Blackboard course shells, to provide students with quick access to the site from within their courses. 

As this is a newly designed service, we encourage your feedback to assist in the maintenance, update, and redevelopment of the site in the future. 

Thank you,

Becky Parton, associate dean, Instructional Technology & Distance Education

LLCC will be discontinuing use of Turnitin

The college has access to SafeAssign (a similar plagiarism detection system) through our Blackboard Learn system.  SafeAssign will now become the single plagiarism detection system available for use at LLCC.

A SafeAssign video tutorial can be found online, as part of the new Blackboard Support Center. Workshops on the use of SafeAssign have been scheduled for Friday, September 6th and Tuesday, September 17th. Watch for the ITDE workshop schedule for detailed workshop information. 

The Turnitin system will remain available through Blackboard through the end of the day on Monday, September 2nd to allow faculty members the ability to access and save any documents that need to be retained.Even though the Turnitin system will be available the first week of the fall semester, do not use the Turnitin system as part of any fall 2013 course work.  The system’s availability during this time period is for backup purposes only.

This document provides you with step-by-step instructions on how to access and save documents from the Turnitin system.

 Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions,

Becky Parton, associate dean, Instructional Technology & Distance Education
