We have instituted a process where the Blackboard courses are now being end-dated. This means that a date is now being set in all courses after which the course is no longer available to students. The end date takes into consideration the need for students to access a course to work on their Incomplete. If a student requests to be given access to a course after the end-date has passed, they will need to get instructor approval. They will then need to forward that approval (if given) to DL@saintleo.edu In this email students will need to include their name, student ID number, and the course ID that they wish to be given access to, along with the proof of that instructor’s approval.

As part of our commitment to fostering student learning, we have recently completed a review of the university’s learning management systems, eCollege and Blackboard. This 9-month review process examined available tools, ease of use, and reliability of services, and determined that it would be in the best interests of everyone at Saint Leo to move to one system. Beginning in January 2012, all courses using a learning management system will be moved to the eCollege platform.
What does this mean to you?
To make sure you’re prepared, take a few minutes to go through the eCollege Student Orientation:
User ID = newstudent
Password = 77777
Once logged in, click on Courses in the upper left corner and you will see Student ORI eCollege Student Orientation
The orientation doesn’t take long but provides critical information on communicating with your instructor and classmates, submitting assignments, completing exams, and participating in discussion posts.
If you need assistance as you are working through the orientation, technical support for eCollege can be found within the course by looking for the Tech Support tab along the top of each page. This provides options for communicating via chat, email or telephone. The toll-free telephone number is 866-501-1636.
If you have questions about the review process, please feel free to contact Dr. Susan Colaric, Assistant Vice President of Instructional Technology (email@example.com).
Faculty who have questions about the Faculty eCollege Orientation should contact Karee Parks (firstname.lastname@example.org).
