UAS no longer has a site license for Softchalk. The Sitka campus has a limited number of individual licenses. Unfortunately because of changes in the Chrome and Firefox browsers (and potentially others) many of the Softchalk activities created in the older (formerly site licensed) version of Softchalk will no longer work.
Softchalk: What is it?Softchalk is a program that lets you build lessons in the form of HTML pages that include navigation and interactive learning activities (popup text, quizzes, interactive images, timelines, and many more). Lessons can be packaged and uploaded to Blackboard. Softchalk runs on both Mac's and Windows.

Publishing to Blackboard
By the end of summer 2013 you should be able to connect Softchalk directly to Blackboard and have learning activities connect to the Grade Center. Until then you can package the lesson as a zip file and load to Blackboard.
