Blackboard Training

Online Learning graphicAt LPC, we use Blackboard for enhancing face-to-face courses and delivering fully online courses to provide a web-based learning community for our students. View the possibilities that Blackboard affords faculty and students.

In order to train and support our faculty, we have developed the following:

  1. The Integrating the Internet Into Instruction program, better known as Four I's, which trains faculty to enhance their face-to-face courses with Web resources. Training is offered in the Innovation Center and online; it's your choice.
  2. The Online Course Development Program, a.k.a. the OCDP, which trains faculty to design, develop, and teach instructionally sound online courses, based on best practices. OCDP training is offered in the Innovation Center and online; again, it's your choice.
  3. The Blackboard Online Learning Team, affectionately referred to as the BOLT, which is an online resource where faculty share teaching and technical tips, and access information about online pedagogy and Blackboard tutorials.
