Blackboard & SoftChalk – Open Lab
Gary Bach, instructional technology specialist
Wednesday, Feb. 14 – 10 a.m. to noon – Sangamon Hall 0119
Have you ever had questions about how to accomplish something in Blackboard but couldn’t attend a previously scheduled Blackboard workshop? Do you just want someone to sit down with you and go over a few Blackboard features that you haven’t used before? Maybe you are curious about what SoftChalk is and what it can do to help you and your students or you use SoftChalk and want to learn about the new features of SoftChalk Cloud. Now you can drop in to one of our open lab sessions and to get a little or lot of help with your Blackboard and SoftChalk questions. No registration is required to attend.
