You may have noticed some changes on the Biological Sciences School Office Blackboard site. From 21 April, some new features have been introduced

Single site

The previous system of separating staff and students sites has been replaced by a new single site for everyone. Sensitive information is only available to staff, hidden from the student view.

Email all students

Members of staff can use the Blackboard site to email students by year of entry and degree stream.

Two new blogs

1. For staff: Leicester School of Biological Sciences

This new blog is available outside blackboard, without the need to log in to discover the latest updates on what is happening. The blog includes updates on new features in Blackboard and Turnitin as well as information on School events and notices. You can have these updates delivered direct to your browser using RSS.

2. for students: Frequently asked questions and School notices

This new blog is an internal Blackboard blog (which is secure) for posting messages to all students. It will contain answers to frequently asked questions (when are my exams?) and school notices.
