Faculty, TA and Staff Indicators on BBS Posts

August 13, 2013 | 0 Minute Read

When a course begins, there's usually a flurry of introductory and administrative questions on a course BBS. While students may know who the faculty on a course are, they may not know the course TAs just yet, or they may not know the instructional designers or other CTL staff who may need to occasionally communicate with them on the BBS.

To make the roles of each non-student who posts to a course BBS clearer, we've added small indicators for "Faculty," "TA" and "Staff" next to the names of the individuals who are in those roles in a course. Here's an example:

Faculty flag in BBS posts.

We hope that this makes things clearer for students, especially at the start of a course.
