Be Prepared

If you don't already have a Blackboard Vista course space, please request one. Course Request and set up a training time with Mary Kavanugh.

Blackboard Vista can help you be prepared should you or your students be unable to attend class.

This fall we will hold three hands-on workshops designed to help faculty learn the tools necessary to put essential elements of your class on-line. Attendees will learn how to use Blackboard Vista to:

  • convert a Powerpoint lecture to an on-line lesson
  • structure a chat or discussion
  • build a quiz or test for your students

Each topic is offered on different days and times to accommodate faculty schedules. You only need to attend one meeting per topic to learn the essential skills.
