This email contains a video message from me regarding the suspension of classes. In addition, below you will find information on new sections of our Blackboard training.
|As a reminder all classes, regardless of delivery modality (including online classes) are suspended through March 29. Students are not to be required to complete any assignments during this time. Please be in touch with your department chair and/or dean regarding your department’s preparations for this transition to remote learning. We will also be developing a faculty FAQ that will be available at www.mdc.edu/coronavirus.

Blackboard Webinar: Get Started & Build Your Content
This Blackboard training session is designed for faculty who have no experience using a Learning Management System (LMS). It will cover the basics of using Blackboard as an instructor such as uploading the syllabus, accessing the class roster, and communicating with students using the e-mail and announcement tools in Blackboard. Participants will also learn how to build content such as uploading PowerPoint, handouts, files, creating pages, adding web links, and inserting rich media content into their courses. (Faculty Professional Development [FPD] 1 hour)
This is a one-hour introduction to the BlackBoard LMS. Participants will also be guided to the online location for video tutorials and helpful resources. This is a good place to start your preparation for online teaching.
These are “Live” Webinars. You may join from anywhere (on- or off-campus) with a laptop or computer. CIOL will email a link to join the Webinar the day before the session.
Last day to register is always the day prior to the Webinar.
