As content developers push for material to revolve around 21st century skills and competencies, it would be great if Blackboard allow developers to create a library of competencies and tag icons for each of these individual skills. Once a Blackboard item (activity/test) is tagged to a set of skills, the corresponding skill icons should subsequently appear beneath the item title. This way, students can visually see at a glance what they are being assessed on and expected of before proceeding to complete the item. Example: A Science activity exploring the process of photosynthesis would include the following icons as part of its associated competencies: Scientific Process Skills; Creative Understanding; Innovative Thinking; ICT Skills; and Global Climate Awareness.
Currently, Blackboard has the ability to build goals but these goals cannot be graphically displayed within the item.
