While working in Blackboard, have you ever noticed Adaptive Release or Review Status and wondered how they can be used?

Blackboard's Adaptive Release and Review Status options allow instructors to design adaptable learning pathways within a course by controlling the release of content to students.  They also help instructors monitor students' progress within a course and encourage students to engage with course content.  During this session, we'll explore how to successfully integrate these options into new and existing courses.

By the end of this session, you will be able to:

  • Apply Adaptive Release and Review Status to course content
  • Design and deploy formative assessments that integrate Adaptive Release to control the release of course content
  • Determine a student's progress using Adaptive Release and Review Status components of the Performance Dashboard
  • Articulate a rationale for using Adaptive Release and Review Status in a course

Bring your laptop to begin implementing this approach immediately!
