Solutions for Pencasts

I am working with a Math faculty member who has dozens of Pencasts in her course.  If you're not familiar with Pencasts, they're suped-up PDFs that play like a video.  The Instructor used some sort…Continue

"If you make the documents "read only" it may solve your problem. (There might be more than one way to do it.) I hope this helps."

A "Copy Only" Blackboard User Role

Does anyone else have this situation - You want folks to be able to Copy content out of a Course/Organization, but you don't want them to be able to Edit/Delete/Create content OR access Grade Center.For example, I've created some standard sets of instructions for VoiceThread assignments and Blackboard Portfolio assignments.  I would love to be able to add these to our Faculty Blackboard Organization so faculty can not only see them, but also easily add them to their courses.  The only solutions…See More

Solutions for Pencasts

I am working with a Math faculty member who has dozens of Pencasts in her course.  If you're not familiar with Pencasts, they're suped-up PDFs that play like a video.  The Instructor used some sort of tablet & stylus device and creates a lesson using her own handwriting and voice.  I attached one as an example.The issue is that if the student is using the Chrome browser, the PDF will open up in the browser and will display as a static PDF.  The PDF needs to be downloaded and opened with…See More

"Yeah.... I think if you want it to persist, you'd have to do some pretty legit coding (and have a place where the data can be stored). I suspect there is a service that might do this, or you might be able to bastardize the tools in Blackboard…"

"That's awesome, Dave!  Yeah - I just tested it and the code works in our instance.  As you mentioned, the next step would be to make the state persist.  The checks are cleared once you leave the page."

Dave Ghidiu replied to Tom Capuano's discussion Embeddable checklist tool for Blackboard
"Well, to make the state persist, you'd probably need to tie in to the user_id in Blackboard (so let's skip that for now). In the meantime, you can just use this code whenever you want checkboxes - no JavaScript required! You don't…"

Tom Capuano replied to Tom Capuano's discussion Embeddable checklist tool for Blackboard
"It does not have to be through that website.  Just boxes to check is all I'm looking for (as long as you could have text next to them like a checklist).  Also, if it's possible that what is checked/unchecked remains unique and…"

"Tom - Does it need to be a checklist through the website? Or are you just looking for little boxes that can be checked?"

Embeddable checklist tool for Blackboard

I'm hoping someone can help me out.  I'm looking for a "checklist tool" that can be embedded into a Blackboard page.  I've found a couple websites that offer free custom embedded checklists, but Blackboard seems to strip out the javascript in the embed code and renders the tools useless.  The idea is to have a checklist for each module in the course that the student could use as they progress.See the following link for an example a checklist I've been trying to embed: …See More
