CDE Event: 5 Blackboard Organization Tips to Lighten the Load and Increase Student Success

Friday, January 22, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am


The Continuing and Distance Education Blackboard course shell can help your students focus more on the content of your course and spend less time figuring out how or where to find materials. By creating a familiar structure from week to week, the course shell is designed to make your course easier to navigate. It integrates design elements such as a course introduction that helps set the stage, with module or topic introductions paving the way week by week. Regular communication from you reminds the students about the structure and alerts them to any changes. This workshop will introduce you to the course shell, and demonstrate quick, practical tips for using it that you can apply to your course right away. Over 110 UVM faculty have already added the course shell to their course—you will hear how they have found success in applying these principles.

Facilitated by Alex Messinger and Colleen Fabian, Continuing and Distance Education
