Overview

Students need to click on the edX (Edge) link once to set up their account (if they do not have one already) and enrol themselves in their edX (Edge) course. Once they have registered they can access their edX (Edge) content from links in their Learning Resources weekly or module folders.

Add an edX (Edge) Course Registration link

Note: The Course Registration link should be placed in Learning Resources content area under the Lecture Recordings link. This will ensure consistency with the Library AskUS guides provided to students. The link may in addition be added to announcements.

Note: This link should have already been added to your Learn.UQ course by the UQ2U team and the link will be updated when you request a course copy each semester.

  1. Open your Learn.UQ (Blackboard) course.
  2. From the Course Menu, select the required menu link e.g. Learning Resources.
  3. Click on the Build Content button.
  4. Select Web Link from the drop down list.

Weekly or Module folder links

Tip: As students may skip the registration link and navigate straight to their weekly or module folders, it is recommended that additional links are added to the first few weekly or module folders. These links should be course links to the edX (Edge) Registration link, as updating the original link will automatically update the additional links.

  1. Click on the required weekly or module folder.
  2. Select the Build Content button then Course Link from the drop-down list.
