Blackboard Tutorial Wiki
Summary: Collaborate with the class using a wiki to create a Blackboard tutorial.
Total Points: 100
Choose your topic
Pick one small aspect of something students do in Blackboard and create a video tutorial just like you did in Unit 3. (20 points) Upload your video to YouTube when you finish. (5 points) Create a transcript of your video. (10 points) Add the transcript to your video. (10 points)
Note: You may want to skip ahead in the assignment and create your page and link in the topic category since no duplicates topics are allowed. In the case of a duplicate topic, I will only accept the work of the person who started first. Everything in PBworks is timestamped with a creation date.
I have created some default categories (you can create more) to get you started.
- Login procedures
- Exams and Quizzes
- My Grades
- Trouble shooting
Some example topics for mail are: inbox overview, compose a message, attach a file, formatting text, etc…
Do not create a tutorial on the whole Blackboard tool. Only talk about a component of the tool. Each video should only be a couple minutes in length.
Creating your PBworks wiki account
Go to http://pbworks.com/ and create an account. (10 points)
Go to the tutorial wiki and request to be a member of the wiki. It is located at http://bbtutorial.pbworks.com/w/page/54644617/Index (5 points)
Create a page (10 points), add your video(10 points), add your instructions (the transcript you used for the captioning) (10 points) and add a link to your page from the appropriate category page (10 points). You can create a new category for your topic if you need to.
After you have finished posting your tutorial on PBworks, submit your transcript to the Blackboard assignment area for this unit.
