Blackboard Advisor Project


The Provost's Office and the Center for Excellence in eLearning are jointly conducting this collaborative project with a goal to promote student success and retention through early intervention. The path to achieving this goal is through Blackboard and a unique role within the Blackboard platform called "Advisor."

Blackboard's Advisor role allows an appropriate UC employee to have read-only access to observed students within Blackboard courses. For purposes of this particular project, Academic Counselors within the Student-Athlete Support Services (SASS) office will have been identified as plausible Advisors.

How to Participate

By default, the Advisor role within your course in “disabled”–we need your permission to enable this feature to allow Advisors to have access. We encourage you to opt-in to this pilot project with the goal of fostering student academic achievement. To participate in the pilot, please complete the registration form by 11:59 PM on Friday, September 7.
