How do students’ access/submit their Career Launch Assignments?

Each course will have its own Career Launch Blackboard course (ex: AMPD 3071 – Career Launch (Spring 24) (1243-career.AMPD-3071)). All Career Launch related assignments will be submitted to this Blackboard course.

How do students get credit for their Career Launch assignments in my gradebook, given they are in a secondary Blackboard course?

This is a two-part process:

(1) You will assign Career Launch the value you wish it to hold in your course grade book.

(2) You will be given access to the gradebook for your students’ Career Launch Blackboard course. You will need to transfer/translate these grade(s) to your own grade book. The standard cumulative point value of all Career Launch assignments is 100 points, but this can be modified for your course should you wish.

What can I do if I do not want to embed Career Launch in my course, but I am still interested in embedding some career education in my course?
