Faculty & Staff

RSVP to TLC for Upcoming Blackboard Training Sessions

This December the Teaching & Learning Center staff will offer three series of Blackboard Training designed for both full-time and adjunct faculty – both novice and experienced users can benefit from the series.

Attendees are welcome to spend time between sessions working in the TLC on the skills learned during each session.  Feel free to sign up for whichever topics interest you or to mix and match series sessions if you are unable to attend all four from the same series.

View the full schedule at December 2017 Blackboard Training.

Part I will introduce participants to TLC & Blackboard resources and will focus on customizing your Blackboard course navigation menu and learning how to effectively use the instructor Control Panel.

Part 2 tackles adding, organizing, and managing content within your Blackboard courses – with a particular emphasis on Assignment, SafeAssign, and Inline Grading – as well as using collaborative tools like the discussion forum.

Part 3 takes an in-depth look into assessment and evaluation tools available within Blackboard, as well as options for customizing and managing the Blackboard Grade Center.

Part 4 will wrap-up with discussion and application of additional Blackboard tools and features and will include a walk-though of how to best manage courses following the Blackboard/PeopleSoft integration process.
