Blackboard Basics and Grade Center
August 18 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pmFree
Blackboard provides space for you to post materials, communicate with students, provide assessments and other student activities, and enter grades to keep students on track. But what do you need to know before you can create, organize, and use a course? How can you find your way through its many intricacies? In this session we will look at organization strategies, the various tools, and the Grade Center so you can experience just enough to decide if and how you will use it. CTL’s workshops, documentation, and individual consults can help you fill in the “how to” details later, but for now, let us pique your interest as we traverse the Blackboard world!
This session prepares participants to:
- Map out a course organizational structure that enhances a student’s ability to effectively use Blackboard.
- Articulate how one or more tools might align with your assignments and activities.
- Identify tools and features that you feel would be most useful to learn more about.
- Navigate the Grade Center and use it effectively.
Facilitated by Wendy Berenback and Ines Berrizbeitia.
