1.4.2 Editing the Contact Professor page and understanding Dashboard

First, in the yellow banner, on the right, click on "Exit Preview," then on "Continue" to return to the instructor view of the course. In the course’s banner, on the right, make sure that the Edit Mode switch is set to “On.” [BEEP]  Let’s start editing the Contact Professor link: click on it and fill out your profile on the Create Contact page.[BEEP]

Next, click on the Dashboard link: the area is formatted as a Module page just like the Blackboard home page.  In the action bar, click on "Add Course Module" to see which modules you can display here. The default Dashboard page includes only 3 modules: “My Announcements,” “What’s New” that displays newly posted items in your course, and “To Do” with due dates for learning activities and assignments provided you set such. [BEEP] Use the hidden drag-and-drop icon to the left of the modules’ names to re-arrange them.
