UNLV is transitioning all online courses from Blackboard Vista (the old WebCampus) to Blackboard Learn (the new WebCampus). Faculty interested in finding out more about this new and exciting learning environment may wish to attend one or many of the free webinars being offered by the office of online ed at UNLV or Blackboard Inc. in the next months.
Please visit our calendar to view all webinar options and to register.
Webinar: Are you bored with discussion boards? Collaborative strategies in blended and online courses – offered through Blackboard Inc. While collaboration is encouraged in blended and online courses, many instructional designers and online instructors find the discussion board to be too artificial and shallow to be successful and engaging. In this session you will see specific examples of successful collaborative activities that go beyond the traditional discussion board question, including a class wiki, several group projects, and even some suggestions on how to improve discussion board assignments that already exist.
