FDBB: New Faculty Blackboard Orientation

Course Description:

This class is specifically for newly hired faculty to help you quickly get started using the college's course management system.

All courses have an online space (called a "shell") available in Blackboard, the college's online course management system. Even if you are not teaching an online course you can use Blackboard to share materials, communicate with students and even post and grade assignments or quizzes. This course will get you started by covering:

  • How to navigate the Blackboard portal and class shell.
  • How to setup/customize a new Blackboard course shell.
  • How to post/modify/delete an announcement.
  • How to add a course syllabus to a course shell.
  • How to create folders for separating content.
  • How to use the online grade book.

This class is introductory. There are many options for taking more advanced classes through the college's Instructional Technology Institute. Those classes are available to all faculty and staff.

It is recommended that you have your Novell username and password before taking this class so you can fully participate in the training.

Seating for each section of  this class is limited to 16 people.
