Welcome to Blackboard 9 Essential Training for Instructors. My name is Patrick Crispen, and for the past ten years I have supported Blackboard at three of the five largest universities in Southern California. In this course, I am going to show you what you need to know to get started with Blackboard Learn. I am also going to throw in some tips, tricks, and even some instructional design strategies that I picked up along the way, things that will help you and your students get the most out of Blackboard. We will cover essentials, such as how to create an assignment and make it available to students. I will explore many of the communication tools, and we will look at how to use discussions in email.
I will teach you how to set up your grade center, add items, and export the records. We will cover how to create assessment items of all sorts, and how to set various settings that will allow you to deliver and grade these items as efficiently as possible. Before we get started, let me give you a quick bit of advice: don't try to learn or use all of Blackboard's tools at once. If you have never used Blackboard, start with the first few chapters as a quick start and then build on that as you need to. Again, welcome to Blackboard 9 Essential Training for Instructors.
