Have you Thought About a Test over your Syllabus?
Why? In the university environment, we place a tremendous amount of information in the syllabus for a particular course. In a F2F course, you have the opportunity to cover the content of the syllabus carefully while fielding student questions. In the online world, we often have little assurance that students read the entire syllabus. Some instructors require students to complete a test (Using Blackboard’s Test Manager) about the syllabus. If you create the test within Blackboard, students also get practice taking a test in the Blackboard environment and you can use this as a teaching opportunity to ensure that students are prepared for the technical aspects of any examinations in your course.
