Spring 2016 Blackboard Learn and Collaborate Training

IIT Online will be holding training sessions for faculty, teaching assistants, and staff during the weeks of Monday, January 4 and Monday, January 11 covering:

Blackboard Learn (course tools)
Blackboard Collaborate (collaboration and conferencing tools)

The sessions will address application basics and focus on certain aspects of each set of tools (including some new testing security features) but the agenda is designed 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.

Reminder: IIT Online is now a unit under the Office of Academic Affairs and provides support for these tools across the university, independent of whether faculty are teaching online or not.

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


  • Tuesday, January 5 at 10 a.m.
  • Friday, January 8 at 2 p.m.
  • Monday, January 11 at 10 a.m.
  • Wednesday, January 13 at 2 p.m.
  • Thursday, January 14 at 10 a.m.

RSVP here . It is not required but is appreciated to estimate headcount.

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