In this Blackboard Bitez, we’ll show you how to get started with your Blackboard course. Especially if you have not used Blackboard before, or just a little, this should help you get started.
Every course at UAF gets a course site created in the Blackboard system. Each course site is initially created invisible to the students. However, if an instructors wants to use it, for example because the course now needs to be taught via distance, the course site can be easily modified to be a ‘home-base’ for course communications, course materials, and even a virtual classroom. The video provides step-by-step instructions on how to get started, some commonly used features, and of course, how to make it visible to the students.
