Have you ever
wondered what Blackboard and WebCT are? They are course management
systems that allow you to use the Internet to communicate with your
students, receive homework assignments, give quizzes, keep track of
grades, etc. They can be used for all or part of a course.
This session will
provide a general introduction to Blackboard and WebCT. The goal is to
have you walk away knowing whether one of these systems is appropriate
for all or part of what you teach. Cuyamaca faculty who use Blackboard
and WebCT will be on hand to answer your questions. TLC staff will be
available to talk about training procedures with those who might be
interested in taking the next step.
