Faculty:: Where can I receive training on Blackboard’s functions?

Have you ever heard of E-Learning or want to know what Blackboard Learn is all about? Would you like to incorporate videos and other media into your online or on-ground courses? Or learn how to engage the students more? Did you know that Blackboard Learn can be used in other collaborative ways other than in the classroom – for clubs, organizations, committees, training, etc.?

If you have not taught online using Blackboard Learn before, you will need to arrange for training with Information Technology & Innovation by contacting the Help Desk at 837-8467, or via email Training@wcsu.edu.

Depending on what type of supplementary training method you prefer, Blackboard training can be conducted either in person, via online, or by self-paced tutorials and videos.
