Training Sessions:

All trainings will take place in the CER conference room in the MSE Library. Directions to the CER. Scheduled trainings will be posted below. Instructors in KSAS/WSE may schedule individual trainings at any time: cerweb@jhu.edu .

Getting Started with Blackboard: This session will provide you with an introduction and overview of Blackboard 9.1’s capabilities. We will cover basic navigation in the Blackboard interface as well as how to add, organize, and modify course content. Importing content from WebCT will also be addressed.

Communication and Collaboration: Blackboard 9.1 offers several tools to enhance course communication and collaboration. Learn how to manage course discussions, email students, TAs, and instructors through Blackboard, create groups for team assignments, and set up a course blog. We will also review some of the other tools available, including Blackboard’s notification system which automatically notifies course members of any changes to the course site.

Assessing Student Knowledge and Managing Grades: Learn how to create and manage online tests and surveys in Blackboard, as well as create assignments that students can submit online. We will also explore the grade center, including how to add items to the gradebook, calculate and weight grades, release grades to students, and download/upload grades.

Grade Center Open Hours: This is a chance for you to stop in and ask any questions you may have about creating columns, calculating final grades, and exporting grades to Excel in Blackboard. No registration required.
