Session Details:

  • Creating your Blackboard Grade Center – The Grade Center in Blackboard is a key component for both online and on-ground classes. Once your Grade Center is created, it allows instructors to provide students with their current progress in the class.  In the very near future, grades will be submitted directly from Blackboard to Ellucian, as WebAdvisor goes away.
  • Enhancing your Content in Blackboard – Save paper by putting all of your documents into Blackboard as links that can be easily accessed and always available, 24/7.
  • Zoom – Use Zoom to video conference with students, faculty and staff. Zoom’s functionality makes it a perfect tool for collaborative meetings, webinars, technical support, as well as office hours, guest lectures, and study sessions.
  • Creating Blackboard Tests – Creating tests in Blackboard saves paper and eliminates the need for scantrons. Learn how to create your own tests in one class and copy them to another class very easily.  Using tests banks from a publisher’s test bank is another alternative. Randomize questions and answers, display one question at a time, or limit backtracking.
  • Ally & Accessible Documents – Ally uses features to create accessible documents for all students regardless of ability.
  • Common Blackboard Issues and How to Fix Them – This session is a two hour webinar that will address some of the familiar problems in Blackboard, such as:
    • Course Copy
    • Date Availability settings
    • Managing Total Columns
    • Using Box/SafeAssign
    • Editing My Courses module
    • Additional Attempts
    • Managing Test Results and Feedback settings
  • Flipgrid – Flipgrid is a free video discussion platform that can be used in online and on ground classes, and is available with your Office 365 account. Use Flipgrid instead of the regular discussion forum in your online class and allow students and instructors to see each other as they participate in the discussion.
  • Respondus Lockdown Browser and Monitor – Respondus Lockdown Browser and Monitor is a proctoring tool that is available at the college.  You will be shown how to set up your tests and how students will use the tool as well.
