Some suggested items that can be covered:

  • Full-day complete Blackboard training and Q&A session (six to seven hours total)
  • Basic introduction to Blackboard (one hour)
  • Adding content and using embed codes (one hour)
  • Assignments (one hour)
  • Quizzes (one hour)
  • Discussion Boards (one hour)
  • Grading and using the Full Grade Center (one hour)
  • Using the Groups tool (one hour)
  • YuJa (Blackboard video software) (one hour)

Custom subjects or scheduled Q&A sessions are available on request.
