Web-cast courses are taught utilizing Collaborate in Blackboard. Class sessions might be attended synchronously or accessed asynchronously through a lecture archive. You will need regular access to a computer with stable, broadband Internet connection, and have basic computer skills, such as emailing, word-processing, and navigating the Internet.
Check your Blackboard shell for information about participating in your web-cast class. Information about class meetings might also be found in the class schedule, either in the
Note area or under
Meeting Time and/or
Location. If you do not find this information posted in one of these places, please contact your instructor.
Blackboard will be available to registered students on the first day of classes according to the academic calendar.
