Policy for Implementing New Blackboard Course Sections

Faculty Training & Skill Development
Develop & Upload Blackboard Course Content
Create New Course Section in BANNER

Faculty Training & Skill Development

  1. Faculty should be trained in Blackboard at least one semester prior to the semester they are scheduled to teach an online course.
  2. The adoption of certain skills and pedagogies are required to teach in an online environment.
  3. Contact  Instructional Designer, to begin individual training or to inquire about upcoming group training sessions.
Develop & Upload Blackboard Course Content
Content used in face-to-face courses can be used in online courses. However, the converting that content into web-enhanced versions takes a certain amount of preparation and time. Learning how to deliver certain types of content varying from subject to subject and class to class depending on the instructor, is also a time constraint.
 
Create New Course Section in BANNER
Only after the instructor feels confident in their ability to facilitate an online course and in the content established should the course be offered to the students as an entirely "web-enabled" course.
