Quick Websites with Course Genie

To arrange a workshop, please contact Simon Kear.


Course description

Course Overview

Course Genie is a very quick and effective way to convert a large, unwieldy text file into an elegant micro-website that can then be integrated into your Blackboard course. Available as a CFS download, Course Genie takes your pre-tagged Word file and generates a website that is far more user-friendly than a multipage PDF file generated from the same source file.

What can I expect to cover?

The conversion only takes a few seconds, so this session concentrates primarily on preparing your Word document and choosing the preferred settings for the final website. Participants are shown how to install Course Genie on their profiles before moving onto tagging the source document itself. Finally, they’ll be shown how to upload the package file to Blackboard.

What will I get out of this course?

Participants will leave with the skills needed to turn their large online text files into engaging websites.

Who is it for?

All University staff and associates

Participant preparation needed?

None, but participants should bring a large Word file upon which to work.
