Description: This session will be conducted with the new version of Blackboard (version 9.1). Blackboard gives faculty and students ways to access course materials and engage students on a class website. This hands-on session will prepare you to begin effectively using Blackboard 9.1 to enhance your class. Topics include the basics of web based course design, organization of course materials, linkage to other web resources and customization to have Blackboard match your instructional needs. The intent is to make Blackboard work for you, giving you and your students convenient access to your course content, as well as a web platform for learning. The web tools embedded in Blackboard can open new doors to designing and offering learning-centered courses.
