The College of Arts and Sciences online learning can help you design courses, improve existing course content and learn how to use UB-supported online tools to develop engaging classes and videos.
UB offers a variety of tools to aid your teaching needs. This collection of online tools is designed to help you explore and create exceptional courses. These include on-demand training, online resources and 24/7 support.
UB students, faculty and staff can use UBbox to store, share and access academic and university-related documents from anywhere, with people inside and outside of UB.
Using UBbox in your courses is a great way to collect and store assignments and projects from your students, and it can be embedded into UB Learns. Here are a few tutorials to get you started using UBbox.
UBbox is a cloud-based online tool that you can store and access documents from anywhere at any time.
Learn to control who can access, see who's reviewed documents, set passwords, expiration dates and custom URLs, and more.
Start collaborating with people in and outside UB when you invite and share specified working documents and folders.
See how to get HTML codes from UBbox that can be used to seamlessly display files or folder contents in UB Learns.
Collaborators outside of UB with whom you have shared folders and files receive an invitation to create a box account and accept UB terms. They should follow the directions in the email invite to create a free box account. They will then log into box.com (not UBbox) to view shared files.
No. Set the Access Type to "Anyone with the link" when sharing the custom URL with people who don't have a Box account.
No. As long as you correctly set the permissions as "Anyone with the link," as described above, anybody visiting the Web page where you have embedded your file or folder can see it.
Yes. If you use the steps above to share and embed a folder and use advanced options to permit downloads, visitors to your site can download the entire folder as a "ZIP" file (a standard format for compressing files).
UBbox is appropriate for university data, Categories I-III. A special account is required to store Category I Restricted Data (such as Social Security Numbers, banking, health, and legal information). Please contact your IT department or the UBIT Help Center for more information.
Set your students up for success with these helpful resources.
