Blackboard – In and Out of the Classroom
Blackboard is a tool instructors use for making announcements, sharing course materials, facilitating communication with and between students, and administering tests and surveys. Many of the same features that instructors use in their course sites can also be used in organization sites created for other purposes. Examples of less traditional Blackboard sites include a site for people enrolled in a campus organization, a committee site for members of a department committee, or a professional development site that provides training information (and the evaluation, if you'd like) of individuals who participate in the training. Organization sites do not have to be specific to a certain semester, and participants can be added and deleted over time. Come see a demonstration of Blackboard features that can be used in a variety of ways. Join the discussion about how you can use Blackboard in and out of the classroom.
