Insight Teacher Console

Generate class list

– do this anytime class enrollment changes (students add or drop)

  1. Open up the 1099 course in Blackboard
  2. Go to Course Tools > Generate Insight Class List (Should be available in all 1099 classes)

  3. Click on Create Class List button

  4. This will generate a .lsc file automatically named, [name of class][date].lsc, and automatically saved to the Downloads folder. Note: this file will give you an error if you try to open it directly.
  5. Make a folder for the 1099 Classlist on your network Home Directory (S:) and copy the .lsc file there so you can find it later
