Blackboard Learn (Enrollment Introduction)

Blackboard Learn (Enrollment Introduction)

Students validate their identity with a BioSig-ID™ profile quickly to unlock 'gated' items within Blackboard, such as a course, quiz or any Blackboard item that supports adaptive release conditions.

Establishing a BioSig-ID™ profile is a one-time occurrence that obviously needs to be explained to the student to avoid confusion and to make it as easy as possible. To that extend the following explanation can be incorporated within Blackboard.

The instructions can be added to a dedicated engage/onboarding course, or to each course individually that will use BioSig-ID™. The benefit of using a single course is that any modifications in the future only need to be made once, but BioSig-ID™ has full support for the Blackboard replication system to yield the same results if templates are modified.

Prerequisites : BioSig-ID™ Blackboard building block installed and made available.

Start off by creating an empty menu page content page called "BioSig-ID™ Enrollment" and check the box to make it available for students.

Then inside the content area use "Tools" -> "Biometric Signature ID" to add the following building block tool instance:

HINT : Triple click on each title or description to select the entire text for easy copying (CTRL+C) to the clipboard.

Title
BioSig-ID™ Enrollment/Practice (click here)
Description
Use this to enroll a new BioSig-ID™ profile for the first time, or practice validating one that you've already created.

This is already enough of an explanation for most students since BioSig-ID™ has build-in instructions to guide a student through the process, but it helps if we add another BioSig -ID™ tool instance right above it. Depending on the features purchased, you will need to select the correct set of instructions for your course. 

When adding this instance be sure to switch to "HTML-source" when pasting the 'description' below by using the 'HTML' button inside the Blackboard WYSIWYG editor. If that button is not visible already, use the button on the far right side that has two arrows pointing down to show more options.

    <p>You will be asked at various points throughout the course to validate your identity.

    <p>As part of our initiative to improve student success and academic integrity, all on-line students are required to verify their student identity. Federal regulations require that all institutions must verify that the student who registers in an online learning course is the same student who participates in and completes the course.</p>
    <p>As an online student, you will be asked to create a biometric password using a tool called Biometric Signature ID (BioSig-ID&trade;). Just like your other institution's credentials, this password should not be shared with others.&nbsp; For quiz or exam assessments you will validate your BioSig-ID and will be monitored via BioSight-ID.&nbsp;</p>
    <p>You will be asked at various points throughout the course to validate your identity.

    <li>BioSight-ID&trade; is a privacy-minded tool that allows for monitoring during quizzes and exam that helps to protect your identity. Images are blurred for your protection and sound levels, not actual audio, is recorded.</li>
    <li>When a quiz or exam assessment is encountered, you will need to allow access to your webcam and microphone.</li>
    <li>During the quiz or exam assessment, your camera will remain on until you submit the exam.</li>
    <li>To avoid infractions:</li>
    <li>Stay in the frame of the camera for the entire exam--bathroom breaks and switching seats with someone else is not allowed.</li>
    <li>Find a quiet room where you will not be in the presence of others or disturbed.</li>
    <li>Wait until after the exam to eat or drink -- you will be well deserving of a drink and snack after you complete the assessment.</li>
    <li>No one likes a cheater-- just do your own work and you will have fewer worries.</li>

    <li>You got this---ON YOUR OWN!&nbsp; Do not allow others to access this test.</li>

    <p>During the exam, you will see an "eye-con"&nbsp; that will appear green when you are in frame and your face is detected.&nbsp; If this "eye-con" turns orange you are in a grace period, when it turns red it means that an infraction is being recorded.</p>
