Navigating and Using the Blackboard Grade Center

Thursday, Feb. 1, 1:30–2 p.m. in Menard Hall 2260
This workshop provides a comprehensive, hands-on introduction to the Grade Center tool.

Then, turning to the instructor perspective, you will learn how to navigate the Grade Center and customize it to suit your needs. Next, you will learn how to create columns to manage and calculate grades. Finally, you will learn how to enter and manage grades, including grading test and assignment submissions.
