How are new Learn.UQ (Blackboard) or edX (Edge) courses and requested?

To obtain a standard teaching course (i.e. based on offerings in SI-NET our enrolment system):

  • Publish your ECP (Electronic Course Profile), a blank Learn.UQ course will be created for you by ITS within approximately 2 days (Years 1 to 6 only).
  • Submit a request using the Course/Organisation Site Request Form found on the Learn.UQ Staff tab.
  • In some schools and faculties, Professional staff may submit a request on your behalf.

To obtain a non SI-NET course (i.e. a community course or corporate course):

  • Submit a request using the Course/Organisation Site Request Form found on the Learn.UQ Staff tab.

Other Considerations

Course Copy:  You can request ITS to copy over the content for you by using the Course/Organisation Site Request Form found on the Blackboard Staff tab. Alternatively, you can copy the contents of an old course into your new course yourself, if you are an Instructor/Teaching Assistant in both courses.

Test course: You can request a test or sandpit course on our test server Staging that has no student access.
