eLearning Services Blackboard Workshops
eLearning Services supports UofSC faculty by providing training and personalized assistance for Blackboard and other academic technologies. Blackboard is a web-based Learning Management System designed to allow students and faculty to participate in classes delivered online or use online materials and activities to complement face-to-face teaching. Blackboard enables instructors to provide students with course materials, discussion boards, online testing, a live presentation platform, tools to make content more accessible, and more.
eLearning Services is offering Blackboard webinars to give new faculty the opportunity
to see the academic technologies they will use to facilitate online or hybrid courses.
New faculty members will view presentations and participate in Q&As so they can move
forward in their course preparations with confidence.
