What is happening?

In Semester One of 2017-18, access to Blackboard course units by students will change. Students will be able to see their own previous years’ Blackboard course units .

The change will not allow students to see all existing units within the School, nor allow a student who is taking a current version of a unit to see the previous year’s version of that unit.

Who will be affected?

Course leaders of course units that have run during the last five academic years (2012-13, 2013-14, 2014-15, 2015-16 and 2016-17).

What do you need to do?

Course leaders of course units that ran during the last five academic years may want to access their own sites and, where appropriate, alter the visibility or settings of items such as online tests, discussion boards, model answers, or feedback on assessments, especially where the new extended access to Blackboard course units may facilitate unintended sharing of course or assessment materials between student cohorts.
