ABCs of Bb: A Hands-on Blackboard Workshop

Thursday, August 17 2017
@ 9:30 AM- 11:30 AM

Diving into Blackboard for the first time can be daunting. Even if you have used Blackboard to post articles or your syllabus, you may need some practice to use it more effectively. In this workshop we will take plenty of time to learn the basics with CTL staff to help you along the way. Specifically we will:

  • customize your Bb Course Menu
  • create folders, items and links (and learn how to organize them to make your course student-friendly)
  • add at least one Blackboard communication or assessment tool (Journal, Blog, Discussion Board, Assignment, or Test tool)
  • see how these tools connect to the Bb Grade Center
If you like to learn by doing, or if you want a better understanding of how Blackboard works before you take other workshops, start here.
