Fall 2017 Blackboard Learn and Collaborate Training

The Office of Digital Learning (ODL) will hold general training sessions for faculty, teaching assistants, and staff during the weeks of Monday, August 14 and Monday, August 21 covering:

– Blackboard Learn (course tools)
– Blackboard Collaborate (collaboration/conferencing tools)

The agenda will cover application basics and will focus on key aspects of each set of tools, but the sessions are intended to be highly responsive to the questions raised by the individual participants.

We encourage faculty who are new to using Blackboard to participate, but we also invite experienced faculty who have questions about specific features like how to use Blackboard for tests, managing the Grade Center, or reusing content from course to course.

All sessions will be held in Stuart Building, Room 103 and will last about an hour.


  • Tuesday, August 15 at 10 a.m.
  • Friday, August 18 at 1 p.m.
  • Thursday, August 24 at 1 p.m.
  • Friday, August 25 at 9 a.m.

If you are unable to attend, contact Brad Katz (bkatz2@iit.edu) or Matt West (mwest9@iit.edu) directly to schedule a department meeting or a small group/one-on-one session.
