Learning Shorts


Learning Shorts, our web learning series, gives you the opportunity to catch up on new features in Blackboard and trends in online teaching without having to leave your desk.

We know life is hectic and schedules are busy. So we have redesigned our Learning Shorts series with you in mind. Each Monday we will share an email and post to the website with one or more resources about the uses, pedagogical best practices, or updates for a tool or feature.

So relax, kick-back, and enjoy getting up to speed on the latest in online teaching.

After watching the video segment join the conversation on Twitter or Facebook by using the hash tag #starshorts.

Ask questions, share ideas and respond to others.  We’ll be monitoring the feed throughout the week.
