This workshop will guide participants through the basic tasks and decisions required to set up a course. First, they will review the course from a student's perspective as they navigate through tools and content. The focus will then turn to the instructor's perspective where participants will walk through the process of creating a Course Menu from planning to adding and organizing links. Participants will gain hands-on experience creating a Course Menu that's suitable for their own course. They will also develop a Getting Started Content Area designed to provide students with information they need to be successful learners. Participants will also learn to customize their course to add visual interest and address pedagogical requirements. comm start-up tasks such as creating announcements, adding calendar entries, building a syllabus, and setting up discussion forums will also be introduced. This workshop is for individuals who are new to Blackboard.
