Embedding self-created websites into Blackboard can be a useful way of developing learning objects and presenting and organising certain kinds of information that cannot be created using Blackboard tools alone.
The process involves creating the website externally to Blackboard – utilising specialised web authoring software – and then importing all of the files that have been used to create the website into Blackboard.
Level of digital literacy required: Advanced
To see a working example of a basic website used in Blackboard you can self enrol on the CELT Blackboard Content Development Community shell (this is only available to DMU Staff)
If you do not have any experience in creating a website, but are interested in exploring the use of websites in Blackboard please contact your Faculty ELT Project Officer who will be able to discuss the potentials further.
If you have already enrolled on the CELT Blackboard Content Development Community shell you can link directly to the working example of a basic website embedded in Blackboard HERE
