New tool in Blackboard allows faculty to bring library resources to online students

Faculty can now bring the library into the Blackboard classroom with a new tool, the UTMOST Curriculum Builder, creating an innovative and convenient way for students to access online library resources.

UTMOST Curriculum Builder is available now from the Tools menu option in Blackboard.

UT Online logoWhen added to a course, UTMOST Curriculum Builder provides an in-course search box for library resources. Search by keyword, author or title. Items from the search can be added to the course and are visible to students as a reading list.

Faculty can create annotated reading lists for assignments with instructions and PDF links. Students can click through to full text.
