Default settings on system level - for course content types

    Under review

    We are trying to tailor our Blackboard to the needs of our users and use most of the system's options for customization and defaults. It would of great value if we were also able to set system default settings for tools, for example blogs.


    Blogs can be either "Individual to all students" or "Course". The default selection is "Individual" but most of our Instructors almost always switch this to "Course" . We would very much like to tailor this for the majority. At other  institutions it is probably the other way around.


    If we had system defaults for tools/content types we could configure the system to be much more user friendly, because our instructors would find that content items were already ready-for-use in most cases. And for those in doubt we can nudge them in the right direction.
