How to activate a Blackboard playground space

What is a Blackboard playground space?

A playground space in Blackboard is a space which is used by an individual member of staff for experimenting with the tools available in Blackboard, and for trying out different ways of structuring a course or presenting content.

Course content can be deleted in order to start again with a blank space. Users may wish to try things out in the playground before adding them to a live course. Only the individual user has access to this area. One playground space is available for each member of staff. It can be activated from the University portal.
