Testers, Testers – read all about it!

Calling all Blackboard users, administrators and gurus – I have an offer too good to be true. For many months I have been planning a new application to help administer Blackboard papers. Currently the system is a very manual one where users for example request a rollover of their paper, that request is emailed to the ITS Service Desk, who log the request and send it to the ITS Blackboard Administration team who in turn manually add all the information you sent through into another system. That’s at least 3 systems and a whole load of manual copying and pasting – over 60 clicks to be precise.

Drum roll please.

eLearning alongside the Application Development team have been slaving away to build the new Blackboard Paper Administration application which will let you manage your own papers. Request rollovers and have them complete within 15 minutes or request a new paper and have that in Blackboard in 15 minutes. Now, before everyone gets to experience this change I’d like to get some real testing done to make sure everything is as easy to use and understand as I’d like it to be. This is where you all come in – if you’re interested in helping out with the testing please fill in the form below. I am hoping to run a focus group session of about an hour (2pm Friday 2 December) and some one-on-one sessions where you get to use the new system and tell me what you think about it and what might benefit from some alterations.
