In addition to the features for all Made to Order Templates, the Diamond Package includes your choice of five (5) Interactive Elements
Each Made to Order template is unique, designed specifically for your district/organization. When you purchase a Made to Order template, a designer will work with you to showcase your brand and educational vision.
Regardless of which Made to Order template level you select, here is what it will include:
Regulatory Maintenance Package
As browsers change, accessibility requirements are updated, and Web Community Manager evolves to include new features and functionality, your custom template may require updates to remain compatible and compliant. With the Regulatory Maintenance Package, you can rest assured that your template will continue to function at peak performance, year after year.
Not sure which Made to Order template package is the right choice for your organization? We can help.
Made to Order templates are designed and developed from scratch to meet your organization's specific needs. The main differentiator between Diamond and Sapphire templates is the number of included Interactive Elements. Interactive Elements (IEs) are premium functionality features that add considerable value and 'wow factor' to a website. These elements can help organize content, make your website more engaging, and enhance the user's experience.
A Diamond template includes your choice of five Interactive Elements, and a Sapphire template includes three. When you purchase a Made to Order template, you'll work directly with an experienced UI/UX designer who will help you decide which Interactive Elements are the best fit for your organization based on your needs. Though you do not need to choose your desired Interactive Elements in advance, we recommend previewing popular Interactive Elements to get an idea of how many IEs you may need/want. This will help determine if a Diamond template or Sapphire template is the better fit. If you realize after purchasing a Sapphire or Diamond template that you want additional Interactive Elements, don't worry! You can add IEs as an add-on at any time during design, development, or in the future.
In additon to the Interactive Elements example page referenced above, you can also use the Show Filter Options button on the Made to Order portfolio page to view live client websites with specific Interactive Elements included. Still not sure if you should choose Diamond or Sapphire? We'd be happy to answer any questions you may have!
Disclaimer: With a Made to Order template, you have full access to the template's CSS and can modify the template's source code if desired, but please note that you do so at your own risk. If you intend to make changes to a custom template's code, we strongly recommend first making a copy of the template as a backup. If you modify your template and unknowingly break something, Blackboard is not responsible for fixing those issues and there may be a cost associated with restoring your template to its original condition. Unless you have extensive experience developing or modifying responsive websites that adhere to current ADA requirements, we recommend contacting the Blackboard support team regarding any template issues or desired changes you would like to make.
