Take a Break with Colleagues and Learn Something Too!
Remote Recess sessions offer an opportunity for faculty to gather online and learn something new in a low-stakes, casual, and FUN way. Each session will focus on a topic (like Blackboard Collaborate), will start with a short demo, then the facilitator will open the session to Q&A. Participants are encouraged to share tips and tricks as we all learn how to teach remotely together. These sessions are designed to help you decide how and when to use certain technologies and activities online.
No registration is required – just meet us on the “playground”!

Optimizing Blackboard's Student Preview
Blackboard’s Student Preview creates a student account, called the “preview user”, permitting an instructor to review the course content from the student perspective. However, did you know that the preview user role can be used to perform other valuable tasks such as submitting mock assignments or test attempts, grading those submissions, and verifying that Grade Center calculated columns are computing correctly?
The “Optimizing Blackboard’s Student Preview” workshop will demonstrate how to add your preview user to your class roster, enabling you to maximize your simulated experience as a student in your course.
