Friday, May 09 2014 @ 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Blackboard is getting a refresh, scheduled for May 14th. While this is not a major upgrade, there are several new and enhanced features worth exploring. During this guided preview session we will tour the most significant changes, such as:

  • Enhancements to the Content (Text) Editor, including better pasting from Word
  • Discussion Board organizational improvements and a new “Post First” feature
  • Global Navigation Menu where you and your students can see what’s new in all your courses
  • Retention Center to identify at-risk students
  • New settings for administering Tests and new ways to view student Test-taking data
  • Video Everywhere feature

Join us for a look at this upgrade and a chance to try some of the new features.
