Some of you are struggling with the new Blackboard system!
Here’s an effort to try to give some direction to students using the new system.
On Thursday, September 6 at 3:00 pm (EDT), Judie Littlejohn from eLearning and I will host a webinar on “Being a Student in Blackboard” — everyone is welcome to attend!
This is the link to the webinar: https://sas.elluminate.com/m.jnlp?sid=2010020&password=M.A064804201DB2FE26B29B158AFD1CB — you can start logging in about 2:45 pm and we’ll do a sound check before we start at 3:00.
Follow the link, click “Run” when it asks, agree to the player plug-in and enter a name when it finally lets you in.
You only need speakers and an internet connection; we will be doing the talking and you’ll use the Chat to ask questions.
We’ll be covering:
- submitting assignments
- taking quizzes
- participating in discussions
- opening files (there’s been problems; we can show you how to work around it)
- email vs messaging
Probably more, but that’ll get us started. If you have something in particular that needs to be covered, drop me a note (firstname.lastname@example.org) or leave a message here.
We’ll be recording this and making it available after the fact.
