Peru State College Distance Education & Online Services



If you are teaching a summer course and would like to start working on your course shell, please contact the Distance Education office. We are always happy to set shells up early for those who request them.



Please remember to double check that your courses are ready before students attain access to them. All Blackboard shells are made available to students the Friday before the class is scheduled to start.

The Library has over 56,500 full text journals/ magazines/newspapers and over 285,000 eBooks. To assist in sharing these resources with your students we are piloting a new service called OneSearch: Curriculum Builder. The service allows you to create and post reading lists for your students directly from your Blackboard course. This tool is currently available for use in Blackboard. We encourage you to check it out and provide any feedback or questions you may have in regards to the service. If feedback is generally positive the College will purchase this tool in May so it will be available to use with your summer and fall courses. The Library has provided a tutorial explaining how to use this tool: Curriculum Builder tool. Please contact Veronica McAsey, Library Director, with questions and comments. Phone: 402-872-2360
