Uploading Publisher's Materials to your Course

Oftentimes you find that the publisher of your course books offer content that you find very useful and beneficial and you want that content be incorporated into your Blackboard (my.gallaudet.edu) course. Many publishers do offer that opportunity in forms of what we called "course cartridges."

A course cartridge offered by a publisher is a great way for you to supplement your course site such as additional reading materials, interactive contents, vocabulary/glossary, and test banks.

One way you can check to see if there is a course cartridge available for your course book, search this website for more information: http://cartridges.blackboard.com/catalog/cartridge_catalog.pl.

If you have a course cartridge from your publisher that you want to import into your course, you need to do the following tasks:

  • Get the Instructor Download Key from your publisher's representative; and/or
  • Get the course cartridge file from your representative (it should come in a ZIP file).
  • In some cases, make note of your login and password information for the cartridge file.

After you have all those information ready, go to Help Desk and create a new ticket requesting that this cartridge be imported to your course. In the description, provide your course ID/number/name and provide all the items listed above. Don't forget to attach the ZIP file to the ticket if you have the file.

A helpdesk technician will perform the importing for you.

If you have any questions or want more information, feel free to contact your eLearning Specialist.
