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.
Other helpful resources include:
Explore Blackboard Learn through On Demand Learning Center which includes short videos, Getting Started Guides, and other documentation.
If you would like to meet in person, please provide us with some days and times that you are available. You may also contact Instructional Technologist, Cheryl McCann at firstname.lastname@example.org from the Board of Regents to arrange for training, or to be enrolled in a Blackboard Faculty Orientation course – which is an unmonitored, self-paced online resource course for instructor
