Module Evaluation and Blackboard

Colleagues will be aware that Module Evaluation is currently underway. Following the collection and distribution of student responses, Module Convenors are required to write a brief commentary on the module evaluation and upload this to the appropriate Blackboard course.

For further detail on this, please see our Module Evaluation support page.


To facilitate this, every Blackboard course representing a 2017-18 RISIS module was set up with a Module Evaluation area at the bottom of the course menu.

This area includes information for staff and students, and a content item to which the Module Convenor’s response can be attached.

Shared Courses

In some subject areas, Shared Courses are used to combine separate RISIS modules which are being delivered together. These Shared Courses will not automatically have the required Module Evaluation area, but it is possible to add the area following the simple steps in this guide:
