Connect Tips: Pairing Your Blackboard Course with Connect

Single sign-on means no more managing multiple sites and log-ins! Quickly and easily pair your Blackboard course with a section in an existing or new Connect course. In addition, here are tips on how to copy a Blackboard course that already has Connect assignments in it and pair it with the corresponding Connect section.


The McGraw-Hill/Blackboard Total Course Solution is so easy to use that it was just selected as one of the Top Ed-Tech Picks for 2012 by eCampus News Readers!

Connect Tips: Managing Your Assignments

It’s simple to manage your Connect assignment list, as well as set assignment dates for individual sections. Connect allows you to modify due dates for different assignments based on a variety of factors, such as class schedules, meeting times, etc.



After you have created your assignments, you can set the assignment policy settings. This “how to” guide will show you how to set point values for each question, add time limits, and indicate if you want students to receive automatic feedback after they complete a question.


Professor Michael Windelspecht from Appalachian State University shares his best practices for setting up assignments in Connect here.

New Connect Quick Guides Site is Live!

The Connect Quick Guides site is a great reference tool if you’ve ever had a “how-to” question while working in Connect. For example, “How do I give a student or a group of students an assignment extension without re-opening the assignment for the whole class? ” With the spring term underway, “Student Exceptions/Extensions” is a common question that arises with instructors. We have the answer to this question and many more at the Connect Quick Guides site. We’ve recently re-designed the site and added more topics, so you can quickly find what you need. Please feel free to bookmark the Connect Quick Guides site and check back during the term as we add more topics related to new enhancements!
