BlackBoard Learn

 
Blackboard Workshops:  

There are two versions of the required Blackboard training for any use of Blackboard at the College: Web-enhanced, Blended or Fully Online.      Either workshop allows the use of Blackboard in Web-enhanced classes and one or the other is also a pre-requisite for Blended and Virtual Certification.   Faculty can choose either workshop; however if someone is new to online learning, CTD0335 Blackboard Introduction is recommended.
