Blackboard Learn is the learning management system that the campus adopted in 2015. It is a robust enterprise system, designed to provide an enhanced learning experience for students, an efficient interface for instructors to prepare course materials and interact with students, and offers a customizable infrastructure.

This series of workshops is designed to provide valuable information about using and configuring Blackboard Learn for instructors, their assistants, and support staff. Priority for the workshops and sessions will be given to those with teaching assignments or for those supporting an instructional team.

This series of workshops will be presented at various levels:

Please ensure you select the level closest to your abilities to ensure that you and fellow participants get the most out of the workshops.

Bb Decaf:

This option will offer a relaxed, and slower-paced workshop by placing an emphasis on step-by-step learning. This category is suitable for the emerging technical explorer or the learner who is new to using learning management systems.

Bb Espresso:

This option will offer a fast-paced more technically driven workshop. This category is suitable for the learner who is confident using learning management system tools, or other online systems, who possesses a high comfort level in learning and adopting new technology.

The Bean (Decaf):
This level is designed for those who are new to the world of online learning. This class will be offered at a slower-pace, emphasizing step-by-step learning.
