Departmental Blackboard Help

Departmental Blackboard Help

The Departmental Blackboard Help will provide basic assistance with Blackboard for you and your colleagues within your department during this transition of course redesign. Reach out to your "Blackboard Buddy" during this upcoming fall semester. This embedded personnel will serve two purposes: a). Many faculty feel most comfortable with asking peers within their departments and b). this will help alleviate the immense load that Amy and Heather would encounter trying to help over 400 faculty with Blackboard redesign on top of what they normally do. 

As a departmental liaison, you are asked to: a). help faculty with Blackboard needs, ideas, and troubleshooting b). serve as a sounding board for the administrators as new ideas and issues arise.
