Ways to get started using Blackboard:

Basic Computer Skills

Faculty must have basic computer skills before attempting to use Blackboard.  BOT courses are available to enhance your skills in word processing, email, web browsing, copy/pasting text, and managing files. 

WebAdvisor to Blackboard Integration

How Blackboard Works with WebAdvisor - Learn what information is transferred from WebAdvisor to Blackboard, how and when Blackboard containers are created, how instructors and students are enrolled in containers, and how to update personal information in Blackboard.

Learn Blackboard Basics

Attend workshops on your campus

Workshops are usually offered during flex week. Check the professional development website for your college for more information.

Fully Online and Hybrid Courses

  • Before a course can be taught hybrid or fully online it must be approved for distance education through the campus Curriculum Committee. Check with your department chair and/or dean for more information.
  • If you're new to teaching hybrid or fully online courses, import the Blackboard model template into your section container and then modify it with your class information. This template is more detailed than most face-to-face teachers will need.
  • @ONE has three courses in particular that you may want to take to learn how to teach online or hybrid courses.  These are:
    1. Introduction to Online Teaching and Learning
    2. Introduction to Teaching with Blackboard
    3. Creating Accessible Online Courses
