How do Notes work in Recordings?

Notes are tied to events in a session via an internal clock. When viewing a recorded session, the Notes window automatically moves a marker (arrow) through the notes to point to the notes that were entered at specific times during the session.

What is the Notes feature and how do I use it?

The Notes tool lets you easily take personal notes during a session or while viewing a recording. Notes can be edited and shared with others. As you write notes about what is being presented in a session, Blackboard Collaborate synchronizes the notes to activity in the session through an internal clock. This is very useful when reviewing recorded sessions later. When playing a recording, the Notes window tracks the progress of the session and displays the notes that were taken at every point during the session.

How do I export and import notes documents?

You can share your notes with someone else by exporting and importing note documents. You may also want to export notes to open them in another application to edit or print them.

Notes can be exported in one of two formats.

  • · For sharing notes with others, export them as Notes documents (.eln files).
  • · For importing notes into other applications, export them as text files (.txt files).

Importing Note Documents

Imported notes behave the same way as notes that were created locally. They can be viewed, edited, deleted and reorganized just like local note documents.

To import notes documents, follow the steps below:

· Click on the Import Notes button at the top of the Notes window. The Open file dialog will open.

· Select the document(s) you wish to import. Only .eln files can be imported.

· Click on Open. The imported note document(s) will appear in the Note Documents list.

How do I save my Notes?

You never have to save notes because note documents are saved automatically to your local hard drive.

How can I format my Notes?

 

To enhance the readability of your notes, Notes lets you change font size and apply basic text styles to your notes.

· Select the text you want to format.

· Enter the desired keyboard shortcut to format the text (see table below).

Note - You can use most standard text editing mouse actions within the text of notes, such as double-clicking to select a word and dragging to select text.

 

The following standard text editing keyboard shortcuts can be used to perform functions within the text of individual notes.

How can I print my Notes?

To print notes, you must export the notes document as a .txt file, open it in a text editor and use the text editor’s print facility.

How do I delete Notes?

When you delete a note document, it is removed from the Note Documents list and deleted from the Notes storage directory.

 

Be careful when deleting note documents – deletion is permanent.

 

To delete notes documents, follow the steps below:

· From the Note Documents list, select the note document(s) you want to delete.

 

 

· Click on the Delete Notes button. A message dialog will appear, asking you to confirm the delete operation.

· Click on Yes to complete the deletion.

How do I start entering Notes?

1. Open the Notes window.

2. Start typing. The cursor is positioned at the top of the Notes editor. As you enter a note, the text will wrap to fit the Notes window.

3. Press Enter to end the note and start a new one. A note is similar to a paragraph (in a word processor) in that pressing Enter ends a note and creates a new one immediately
