We have been contacted by some faculty that were concerned about the addition of the McGraw Hill Campus link in the Blackboard navigation menu. The link automatically appeared as the result of an upgrade to the McGraw Hill building block.
The McGraw Hill Campus button is a link to educational resources, lecture capture, test banks, multimedia and other academic resources for Ohio University faculty, regardless of whether or not they use McGraw Hill textbooks.
Faculty who do not wish to take advantage of these resources may delete the McGraw Hill Campus button from the Blackboard navigation menu by clicking on the chevron (double down arrows) and selecting Delete.
