(Brought to you by the power user team at Leeds Beckett)

The Distance Learning Unit at Leeds Beckett has been described as a "power user" of its Blackboard installation. Since 2012, we have revolutionized how our academics deliver an integrated learning experience for purely online learners, with our instructional design team utilizing various tools and techniques available in Blackboard to produce interactive, enjoyable, and rewarding modules for our learners. During this session, we will demonstrate our distance learning style, showing how we have used discussion boards, wikis and other tools to create an immersive experience for our learners.
