Blackboard Training Level 1 & Level 2 courses now available; everyone welcome!


The Office of Online Learning is very pleased to announce that the second course of our new PHASE ONE  training program is AVAILABLE!  “Level 2”

Training has been developed for Blackboard Learn to meet the needs of faculty wanting to web enhance a face-to-face course, or who want to be certified to teach a hybrid and/or a fully online course.   The courses use an open, self-paced design to target several different audiences.

·         Those who have never taught online before

·         Those who have taught online but not using Blackboard Learn 9

·         Those who have taught in Blackboard but not with Monroe Community College

·         Those who are already MCC certified but would like a refresher.

We will have 3 main courses.  They are designed to be taken in sequence and build on each other.  Select the pedagogy method you wish to use in your course and take the number of courses necessary to be certified at that level.  Blackboard has many features and tools available to you. The tool sets we feature in training have been carefully selected to provide a comprehensive cross section appropriate for each pedagogical method currently identified here at Monroe Community College. You are not limited to the tool sets featured, however completion of training is required for the pedagogical methods MCC has defined: Web Enhanced, Hybrid, Fully On-Line.
