Blackboard Online Learning Team (BOLT)

The Blackboard Online Learning Team

The Blackboard Online Learning Team (a.k.a. the BOLT) is designed as a support resource for Chabot and Las Positas faculty who teach with Blackboard. It is accessible only to faculty with Blackboard accounts. They simply log into the Blackboard server and click the BOLT link.

Faculty are urged to ask, and answer, pedagogical or technical questions on the BOLT's Discussion Board. The Discussion Board is also available to see how other instructors are using Blackboard and to share successes, frustrations and lessons learned.

In the Blackboard Resources section, there is information on online pedagogy, including teaching tips and sample lesson plans. This section includes a Blackboard Basics folder, in which you can sharpen your Blackboard skills and get the necessary information necessary on how Blackboard operates in the Chabot-Las Positas Community College District.

Also in the Blackboard Resources section, you'll find tutorials on how to accomplish most Blackboard techniques.
