Blackboard Scavenger Hunt

Make learning to use Blackboard more enjoyable by utilizing a simple Blackboard Scavenger Hunt.

Students familiarize themselves with Blackboard tools/areas, such as:

  • Announcements
  • Course Syllabus
  • Course Content areas
  • Discussion Boards
  • Faculty Information

Students demonstrate their mastery by completing a brief Blackboard assessment.

How to do it:

1. Place the “items” in the appropriate locations in your Blackboard course in various formats. Items can be text, images, or whatever you can come up with.

2. Create a short Blackboard quiz asking for the items they found and make it available.

3. Create a printable handout outlining the Scavenger Hunt items, hints, and a place to note answers.

4. Students will complete a short, graded, Blackboard quiz using the items they have found.
