Blackboard Training and Support

Several resources are in place to support the course management system, Blackboard. Whether you are considering Blackboard for the first time or an experienced user curious about trying out new features, we are sure you will find the support you need.

Multimedia Lab Facilities and Classroom Video Recordings

The CTEI also provides access to, and training on, faculty multimedia lab facilities.  The lab enables you to scan slides and other images, create audio and video files, CD-ROMs, DVDs, and more.  CTEI staff are available for assistance and one-on-one training upon request. 

We can also arrange to have a video recording done of your teaching either for your own feedback or for your teaching portfolio.
