VU Collaborate, useful information
This weekly email aims to provide you with tips for using VU’s new Learning Management System (LMS), VU Collaborate. We will outline some of the new features of the LMS and provide links to the many helpful resources produced by the Blended Learning Team. We have provided ‘play areas’ within VU Collaborate (sandpits) for you to investigate the new features of the system that will progressively be rolled out during 2014 to replace Blackboard (WebCT). Please note that most staff will continue to utilise Blackboard (WebCT) over Semester 1, and VU Collaborate will be available in Semester 2. For further information regarding the timelines for VU Collaborate, please refer to the FAQ guide.
This week’s tip: Copying components from your Sandpit Space or Migrated Space to your Live Space
The Blended Learning Team have developed an extensive help site with a range of resources on issues such as course design and copying components from one Space to another. As Second Semester approaches, you will need to copy the components from your sandpit space or migrated space, into your live delivery space. For step-by-step instructions on how to achieve this, see the help guide we have developed on the subject.
