Access content in a course

At the top of the page, you can open frequently used tools. Select the icons to check the course calendar, drop in on class discussions, access your grades, and send a message. When you're finished, select the Content icon to return to all the content your instructor has made visible.

If you can access content on a future date, your instructor can show the item in the content list with that date. You can't open it, but you're alerted so you know what work is ahead.

When someone contributes to a conversation or a discussion, an activity icon appears next to the item's title on the Course Content page.

Your instructor's name and picture appear. Select the Roster to view everyone enrolled in your course. If your instructor uses the attendance feature, you can access your records from the Details & Actions panel.

You can upload files to web apps that run in the "cloud" and aren't installed on your computer, such as OneDrive®.

What if I don't see some content?

You may need to complete other coursework and earn a certain grade before you can access an item. Your instructor sets up access rules and can choose to show you the rule. For example, if you need to earn 80 points or more, you'll see a lock icon on the Course Content page next to the content or folder. Select the link below the item to view the access rule.

Your instructor can set up multiple access rules. You need to satisfy all access rules before you can access the content.


Ally a Learn Ultra - Estudiant

ULTRA: Visualització dels formats de fitxer alternatius

No us resulta familiar? Aneu a l'ajuda d'Original per veure formats de fitxer alternatius.

La vostra institució decideix quines eines estan disponibles.

Cada estudiant té unes preferències i capacitats d'aprenentatge diferents. Quan l'instructor proporciona material més accessible, tothom pot triar els formats que els hi van millor. Si la vostra institució fa servir Blackboard Ally, els instructors poden utilitzar aquesta eina per assegurar que el contingut del curs sigui accessible a tots els estudiants.

Un cop el vostre instructor hagi adjuntat els fitxers al curs, Ally crea formats alternatius per als fitxers basant-se en l'original. Per exemple, si el fitxer original és un PDF, Ally crea fitxers d'àudio, de Braille electrònic, i d'ePub amb el mateix contingut. Aquests formats s'ofereixen juntament amb el fitxer original perquè els trobeu fàcilment.

Els formats alternatius que es creïn dependran del tipus de fitxer original. Si no veieu l'opció per descarregar els formats alternatius, és que Ally no està activat per al curs o el tipus de contingut del fitxer no és compatible.

Trobeu un fitxer del curs. Seleccioneu la icona de descàrrega Formats alternatius. Trieu la versió que s'ajusti millor a les vostres necessitats. Seleccioneu Descarrega per guardar el format alternatiu al vostre dispositiu.
