Available Now: Easily Change Due Dates of Assignments with Date Shifter for Qwickly Course Tools in Blackboard Learn

January 18, 2022


With Qwickly Course Tools, instructors can simplify the management of multiple courses, improve communication, and streamline repetitive tasks. This multi-purpose tool now allows instructors to easily change the due dates of various assignments after the assignment has been created. The Date Shifting feature is currently only available for Qwickly Course Tools licensees using Blackboard Learn Original or Blackboard Learn Ultra.

How it works: 

Inside Course Tools, you will find the “Change Dates Tool." Keep in mind that institutions can customize each of the tools' names. While inside the "Change Date Tool," the instructor can select a course and view assignments that have been created and when they are due. 

The instructor can then change the due date of any of the assignments displayed. They are also able to set due dates for items not originally assigned a due date. After setting due dates, the instructor then can go back into Blackboard Learn and view the newly set due dates.

By using the Date Shifting Tool, instructors can streamline the process of updating assignments by making this change across multiple courses in one single hub.
