ISIS class lists available through Blackboard

Just a reminder to faculty that ISIS class lists are available online through Blackboard. The lists are accessible even for faculty members who do not have courses on Blackboard.

ISIS class list information on Blackboard is updated every morning at about 5:30 a.m. Faculty can obtain the lists using these instructions:

1. Log on to TUportal (tuportal.temple.edu).
2. Click on the Blackboard link in the TUapplications box.
3. Click on the Course Tools tab. A Course List will appear, which lists all of the courses you are scheduled to teach along with any Blackboard courses or communities in which you are the instructor or leader. All ISIS courses will be in uppercase and will be identified with an ISIS icon in front of the course name.
4. Click on the Class List icon (the one that looks like an open book) to the right of the name of your ISIS course.
5. You can then print or export the class list for use in Excel or TurningPoint by clicking on the appropriate icon in the top right area of the list.

Pilot synch tool simplifies class lists for faculty

Computer Services is pilot testing a new enrollment synch tool for faculty who use the auto-enrollment feature in Blackboard. Currently, the auto-enrollment feature only adds students to Blackboard courses; it does not remove students who may have dropped courses.

The new synch tool allows faculty to quickly and easily remove students who are no longer registered and also helps match the Blackboard roster and gradebook to the ISIS class list.

When a student is removed from a course, however, all of the information associated with the student, such as gradebook information and drop box files, is also removed.

Faculty can make use of the sych tool by following the steps below:

1. Log on to TUportal (tuportal.temple.edu).
2. Click on the Blackboard link in the TUapplications box.
3. Click on the Course Tools tab. A Course List will appear, which lists all of the courses you are scheduled to teach along with any Blackboard courses or communities in which you are the instructor or leader. All Blackboard courses will be identified with a Bb icon in front of the course name.
4. Click on the Beta Synch icon (the one with two small arrows) to the right of the name of your Blackboard course.
5. Click in the checkbox next to the names of any students that you want to add to or remove from your Bb course.
6. Click on the Synchronize button at the bottom of the screen.

Faculty members with questions or suggestions regarding the synch tool can contact the Instructional Support Center at 215-204-8529.
