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! Professor Carolyn Ponce at Arkansas State University offers her tips for using Connect + Blackboard here: Thank you for using McGraw-Hill Connect! If you have any other questions or would like more information on getting started, check out the Connect Success Academy.

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.



Thank you for using McGraw-Hill Connect! If you have any other questions or would like more information on getting started, check out the Connect Quick Guides.

McGraw-Hill Connect Increases Student Engagement and Grades at New Mexico Junior College!

Prior to implementing Connect® Music, Professor Carolyn Ponce had used reading assignments, interactive chapter activities, and CDs in her online course, but her students lacked a sense of total engagement with the material. She felt that by increasing student access to listening opportunities, she could better engage them in the course. Thanks to the streaming music available in Connect Music, her students now spend much more time on concept application and active listening. As a result, she has seen an increase in the number of students earning an A in the course. Read more about her success in this CASE STUDY.



Connect Music not only provided students with simplified access to the music, but also enabled Professor Ponce to monitor how her students interacted with it. She is very pleased with the results and says, “Thank you for Connect! It is a powerful tool and it does add great value to a course.”
