Blackboard is a Web-based course-management system designed to allow students and faculty to participate in online classes or use online materials and activities to complement face–to-face teaching. This workshop will present information about how to use Blackboard to access course features, such as course syllabus, customizing your entry page, downloading course documents, participating in discussion boards, using the new assignment submitting feature and taking online quizzes.
PLEASE ENCOURAGE YOUR STUDENTS TO ATTEND THESE VERY USEFUL HOT TOPIC SESSIONS. If you would like to offer extra credit to students, they will be given an “extra credit ticket” as verification of their attendance to bring back to class.
