Getting Started with Blackboard/Blackboard Drop-in 

Tuesdays, 12:15 p.m.-1:30 p.m. - Woods Classroom (Mortensen Library) or FCLD Faculty Lab 
Prerequisites: Basic familiarity with computers and the Internet. 

Every Tuesday, we offer an orientation and drop-in clinic for Blackboard, the application used to put courses online. If you’re new to Blackboard, you’ll learn strategies for organizing your Blackboard course, review the many tools and features available in Blackboard, and start adding course content items like your syllabus and web links to your course. Be sure to bring a digital version of your syllabus and/or other course materials; this is designed as a hands-on seminar. If you’re using Blackboard already, feel free to drop by with a question or for troubleshooting.
