MVPs ~

Thanks for being willing to be the information bridge to your faculty and instructional designers!


Our Blackboard Innovative Teaching Series (BITS) webinars have started back up for the 2nd half of 2017. The first session was on August 17 with MVPs Corrie Bergeron, Kimberly Gibson, and Stephanie Richter (Woot! Woot!) presenting on “10 Tips to use Blackboard Learn tools and features to engage students.” They hit it out of the park and we had over 810 registrations! The recording and slide deck can be accessed on the BITS Community>>


Our next BITS session will be presented by Marcus Christian, Instructional Designer at Liberty University (VA) on:


“How to effectively communicate with students using social media”


Do you know how to effectively use social media in your online classroom?

Join us to learn some great tips and best practices!

Today's students are always connected to their technologies and social media accounts. Although social media is widely used, there are few instances where students can actively participate from their phones and tablets. There are many uses for social media in the classroom from engaging the reluctant participant to interacting with students on a less-formal level. Social media can be used for research, collaboration, and in-class participation. Social media is here to stay and there is no reason why it should not be embraced in the classroom.


This is a quick 30 minute session over lunch.

So please invite your faculty and instructional designers to grab their lunches and REGISTER HERE>>


Thanks so much for your support!
