Solutions for Pencasts

Started this discussion. Last reply by Martha V. Gold Nov 28, 2016. 3 Replies

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

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…Continue

Grades Journey

We were wondering if anyone uses / is familiar with Blackboard's Grades Journey.  It popped up on our radar today and it looks pretty interesting.  Apparently it works with your SIS:With Grades Journey, the SIS can optionally define columns in the Grade Center, graders can post the gradebook for retrieval, and the SIS can retrieve…See More

"Sounds good. I understand that the updated versions of the Echo Pen now allow for the PDFs to be played immediately online via Livescribe. Hopefully, that will make it a bit easier."

"Thanks for the reply, Martha.  Yes, that is what we ended up doing for the ones she wanted to keep.  We also encouraged her to consider this as an opportunity to redo any that needed updating, which she did."

"Hi Tom,  I too was looking for a software solution to convert Pencasts into videos so that I could add captioning to them. Unfortunately, the only solution I could find was to run the videos and record them on a screencast program like…"

"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…"
