UW-System Updates

    Blackboard Collaborate Ultra: April Release (4/2/17)
    Monday, March 27
    Blackboard plans to introduce new features to be released on Sunday, April 2, 2017. The update will not cause a disruption in service and will include the following improvements:

    • * Users will be able to provide real-time feedback in a session (e.g., Agree, Happy, Faster). The selected feedback appears with a user's avatar on the main screen, in the Participants panel, and in Chat. After 30 seconds the feedback disappears.
    • * Users can access a tutorial within the session, which is expected to help acclimate new users to the interface. This new feature will be available via the Settings menu.
    • * Improved chat panel user experience for screen reader and keyboard users.

Learn@UW-Stout Access 

New instructors must return their signed contract to Human Resources and activate their UW-Stout email account to be integrated into Learn@UW-Stout. Learn@UW-Stout accounts are created utilizing our Human Resources ERP system.

Course Creation

All UW-Stout course sections are automatically set up as individual courses in Learn@UW-Stout each semester. All courses in Learn@UW-Stout are created "active".  Note:  Students will not be able to access their courses until the course start date.  Students will see the course start date listed in parenthesis next to each course in their Learn@UW-Stout My Courses listing.

Combine Course Sections

If instructors are teaching a course with multiple sections, such as undergraduate/graduate sections or lecture, discussion and lab sections, and want those sections combined into one Learn@UW-Stout course, please note the following change to the Course Combine Request Process.  ***Beginning with the spring 2017 semester*** instructors will log in to Access Stout and go to Self Service > Faculty Center > My Schedule to select the course sections they want combined in Learn@UW-Stout.  Please click on the knowledgebase article for step-by-step instructions.
