Self-Paced Blackboard Fundamentals Workshop

We highly recommend you take the Self-Pace​d Blackboard Fundamentals Workshop to learn the Bb technical skills needed for the Teaching Online Workshop and Online Course Development Workshop.

This four-module workshop offers you an opportunity to gain foundational knowledge of the Blackboard learning management system and the best practices associated with its use. Blackboard is a very robust learning tool that provides many opportunities to supplement courses and facilitate full-scale online course delivery. This workshop will ensure that you have the skills necessary to be successful in using the Blackboard system. The workshop is divided into four modules, each with an end-of-module assessment. Keep in mind that this is a self-paced workshop and may therefore be completed in less time by some participants and require more time of others.
