Capture a list of student IDs, first and last name, and email address directly from Blackboard. Easy to copy and paste into Excel with a minimal bit of clean-up.

  1. Blackboard: Users and Groups section: select Users
  2. At the bottom of the page "Show All" to display all students in the section
  3. Highlight the column headings and all rows of students. Copy and
  4. paste into Excel as text
  5. Clean up by deleting the instructor rows AND all students that have dropped the course (need to figure out from Banner!)

I will persist until I succeed.
Always will I take another step. If that is of no avail I will take another, and yet another. In truth, one step at a time is not too difficult. I know that small attempts, repeated, will complete any undertaking.

Projects as Golfing:
You can only hit one ball at a time, so keep each swing focused on where the ball needs to land. If the ball falls short of its destination, you can always hit it again.
