Blackboard Course Development Shell

Blackboard Certified EPCC faculty can email a request to the DLSS department at dlss@epcc.edu and request Blackboard Course Development Shells. Shells are set up for individual courses not sections. A development shell is not accessible to students and provides a place for faculty to work privately with online course content.
