Blackboard: Communicating and Collaborating

Friday, August 22 2014 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

In this workshop, we'll explore Blackboard tools designed for communication between faculty and students and for collaboration among students. We will discuss the basics of using:

  • Announcements
  • Email and Messages
  • Private Journals
  • Discussion Boards
  • Blogs
  • Wikis
This workshop assumes prior knowledge of: navigating in the Blackboard course environment (course menu, control panel, bread crumbs); basic understanding of content areas and adding tools; basic understanding of how to use the text editor.

If you do not have mastery of the above skills, please be sure to attend the previous workshop "Blackboard: Understanding and Building Your Course" or make an appointment with the CTL "Doctor Is In" program before attending this workshop. Email or see the schedule here:
