FMCC, OER & Blackboard

By design all content for all OER courses at FMCC appears in Blackboard every time the course runs.

This process involves two steps.

1. One changes are finished to OER content, a request for a cartridge to be exported must be made with OER Services or Lumen Learning

2. The exported cartridge must then be imported into Blackboard.
