Teaching & Learning Discussion: Using Blackboard

This is a new type of post here at Interact at the Center. We will provide a general topic related to teaching and learning and ask for contributions from our visitors. This is your opportunity to interact with other faculty members and graduate students.

Today's topic is Blackboard, and for those who do not use or are unfamiliar with Blackboard, it is a teaching tool that provides an online grade book, assignments posting, calendar, discussion boards, virtual classroom, digital drop box, and much more. This discussion is focused on the following questions...

• What innovative uses of Blackboard have you implemented into your teaching?

• What is your favorite feature that you would share with a new faculty member?

• How do students feel about using Blackboard as a learning assistance tool?

If you are interested in learning more about how to use Blackboard to facilitate teaching and learning, contact IDEAL at 2-6792 or ideal@bgsu.edu -- For technical questions, visit the ITS Blackboard Help web page or contact ITS at 2-0999.
