Crear contenido y contenedores de contenido

¿No le resulta familiar? Vaya a la ayuda de "Ultra" sobre cómo crear contenido.

¿Está listo para agregar contenido a su curso? Cree sus secciones de contenido individuales en contenedores de contenido: áreas de contenido, módulos de aprendizaje, planes de lección y carpetas. En un contenedor de contenido, puede crear contenido de menús para elementos de contenido, pruebas, actividades y enlaces a herramientas.

Más información sobre los tipos de contenido que puede agregar

A medida que crea contenido, puede configurar sus opciones como, por ejemplo, su disponibilidad. Puede crear contenido y establecerlo como no disponible para los alumnos hasta que todo esté listo para que puedan verlo. También puede limitar qué elementos pueden ver los alumnos basándose en la fecha o la hora, en usuarios individuales, en grupos del curso y en los resultados correspondientes a los elementos calificados.

Ejemplo: Publicar una actividad después de que se complete una prueba

Puede restringir el acceso a la siguiente actividad hasta que cada alumno complete una prueba. También puede requerir que la actividad no se publique hasta que los alumnos completen la prueba y alcancen una puntuación del 70 por ciento como mínimo.

Create Content

Your course creation starts on the Course Content page. You'll find it's easy to discover features and complete actions.

Add content. Select the plus sign wherever you want to add content. You can also expand or create a folder or learning module and add content. Create new content, upload something you already have, or add content from external sources or from another course.

Create: Add learning modules, documents, links, folders, discussions, assignments, and tests. A panel opens and you can choose the content type you want to add.

Copy Content: Copy an entire course or select items from the Ultra courses you teach. Want to copy an entire Original course or import a course package? Open the menu on the right side above the content list and select the Import Content option.

Upload: Browse for files on your computer. They will appear in the content list. Students select a file title to download it. Supported file types include DOC, DOCX, HTM, HTML, MP3, MPG, PDF, PPT, PPTX, XLS, XLSX, RTF, TXT, ZIP, and most image types.

Content Market: Discover and add content and tools from external sources. Access valuable learning materials from Blackboard's partner publishers, such as Macmillan and Jones & Bartlett.

Cloud Storage: Instantly connect to multiple web apps where you store files, such as OneDrive® and Google Drive™. You may choose multiple files from cloud storage to add to your Course Content page in one action. The files you add are copies. If you make a change to a file in cloud storage, you need to upload a new copy in your course.

Content Collection: Add files from your institution's shared repository. You can store and find content in personal, course, and institution folders in the Content Collection. If you stored files from other courses in the Content Collection, you'll be able to easily find and add them.

Control what students see. Students can't access your content until you decide to show it, but you can always see it. Select an item's visibility to change it. You might show only the first week of content—and keep the rest hidden as you refine it. Have fun! Experiment! You can also create rules to release content based on date, time, or how a student performs on other items in your course. When you create these rules, you can choose whether the item is visible to students before they have access.

With your keyboard, tab to the visibility list and press Enter to open the menu. Use Alt/Option + the up and down arrows to select an option.

Organize with folders. You can create two levels of folders to organize your content. Students can navigate easier when they don't have to search for materials. Optionally, add folder descriptions to help students understand what content you've included in them. After you already have two levels of folders, you can't create a third level or upload a folder into the second-level folder.

Organize with learning modules. You can use learning modules in your course as containers for organized collections of content. Modules let students navigate from one content item to the next without distractions or extra clicks.

Reorder content easily. Point to an item to reveal its management functions. Select the Move icon and drag the item to a new location in the list.

With your keyboard, you can move an item to a new location, move an item into an expanded folder, and move a folder into another expanded folder.

  1. Tab to an item's move icon.
  2. Press Enter to activate move mode.
  3. Use the arrow keys to choose a location.
  4. Press Enter to drop the item in the new location.

Edit and delete content. In an item's row, open the menu to access the Edit and Delete functions. You can make changes or delete an item from your course. If you delete a folder or learning module that has content, the content is also removed from the Course Content page.

Add goals and standards. You and your institution can use goals to measure student achievement across programs and curriculums. After you successfully upload a file to your course, you can align one or multiple goals. Students won't be able to see the goals you align with a file.
