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. See CTD0335b and CTD0335 below.
CTD0335b - Blackboard Learn Essentials for LMS Users
The online Blackboard Essentials workshop is designed for faculty with experience using a Learning Management System. It will cover the basics of using Blackboard as an instructor and is a pre-requisite for other workshops such as Blended Strategies and Virtual College Certification. It will be open entry/open exit and will be available for the full semester. Although the workshop is self-paced, there will be a Question and Answer Discussion board that will be monitored for anyone needed assistance. Attendance in one of the face-to-face overview sessions is highly recommended.
