How to use Blackboard:

Download a one-page summary of Faculty Support for Blackboard (PDF)

Download the new course development compensation policy (PDF) and application (DOCX).

All sections of all courses automatically have shells created for them on Blackboard. These shells can be used for fully online and blended courses, and can also be used to organize face-to-face courses: distributing handouts, collecting assignments, communicating with students, and making grades available to students. See these video tutorials for assistance, or come to one of the weekly Drop-In Support sessions.
