Currently we have several Blackboard Basics workshops scheduled for this semester. This workshop covers everything you need to know to get started in your course. Visit the Blackboard Basics registration page to sign-up.
In order to make the most of your time, we are scheduling more advanced topics (assignments, tests, discussions) by appointment only. We encourage you to schedule a group session with your colleagues. It’s more fun that way and we can tailor the training to meet your needs. Contact the STaR office to schedule a customized workshop today!
Our Track 5 workshops are fully online and self-paced, covering everything from the basics to encouraging community in your course. Workshops are scheduled to start every two weeks to encourage cohorts. However, there is no set completion time and you have ongoing access to these workshops so that you can return to them whenever needed. Visit the training registration page to see a full list of workshops available at this time.
During Spring Break you’ll have the opportunity to whip your course into shape by attending our Blackboard Boot Camp. Boot camps last 3 days and cover all the important topics. The first two days are dedicated to hands-on training, while the third day is reserved for working on your course with STaR staff available to assist. Sign-up for this semester’s Boot Camp (March 19th – 21st) by visiting the registration page.
Finally, don’t forget to check out the Help Tab in Blackboard for resources such as Quick Start Guides and Video Tutorials. In particular, you may find it useful to review our Faculty Guide to Blackboard Courses. As always feel free to contact our office with any specific questions or to arrange a one-on-one meeting.
