The Faculty Development and Instructional Design Center is proud to announce the release of a new online format for the Blackboard I: Introduction to Blackboard workshop. This new self-paced version makes it easier than ever to get started with Blackboard at NIU.
Through a series of video tutorials, you will get an overview of Blackboard’s course layout and navigation, be exposed to various course tools, discover communication and assessment features, and see how to request your own Blackboard courses. By the end, you will be able to:
- Request a course/shell and make it available to students and other participants
- Use the features of the Blackboard Control Panel
- Add, revise, and control availability of content in an online course
- Structure a course by using folders, customizing the course menu, and adding events to the course calendar
