Best Practices for Implementing Blackboard Communities

Version 3

    The Blackboard Communities license enables powerful new features within Blackboard. Get an inside look at Wilmington University's implementation and support processes that have been developed over the last three years. Using these flexible tools, you can improve how your institution communicates with specific segments of the students, staff, and faculty. Learn how department leaders, program chairs, and club advisers have created learning communities to communicate and engage with key audiences. The project plan and usage data will be shared for a unique organization named the Online Student Association; this virtual community allows participants to network with other students, faculty, and staff in a relaxed atmosphere outside of the classroom. Lesson learned and sample communications will also be shared so your institution can get up and running with Communities fast. This session will show you how to better leverage your LMS as a customizable online portal.
