Today’s snow showers reminded me that I wanted to post about another reason for using Blackboard.
If you need reasons for using Blackboard we presented 20 reasons for using Blackboard during Wentworth Opening Week. Tuesday’s storm added another reason to use Blackboard – snow days!
If you are looking to make up lost class time consider using Blackboard to deliver some content to your students – think lecture content you can find on sites such as YouTube and Ted Talks, interactive slideshows you can create on VoiceThread, or even lecture recordings you can create with Echo360 Personal Capture.
Once you have content provided to your students add an assignment or activity that requires your students to interact with the content such as a discussion forum, problem set, or quiz to encourage students to engage with the content you’ve shifted to Blackboard.
If you want to use Blackboard to make up this week’s snow days and need help, stop by our office in Annex Central 205 and we’ll be glad to help you.
