Thursday, May 14, 2020
11:40 AM - 12:40 PM


To attend this webinar, log-in as a guest at Access the link at least 24-hours prior to the workshop to be sure that you can successfully log in.
The webinar starts at 11:40 a.m. and we kindly request participants to enter the webinar at least 15 minutes prior to the start time and no later than 11:45 a.m. 
Remote Teaching: Tools for Collaborative Projects is a webinar ONLY – please do not come to CTE Office.

During this session we will examine three tools for collaboration available in the Blackboard course management system: discussion boards, wikis, and Bb Collaborate Ultra. These easy-to-use tools enable synchronous and asynchronous discussions, collaborative projects and presentations, interactive sing-up sheets and can be used with large and small groups to create engaging learning experiences for students at a distance. Examples of student projects created with these tools, as well as student feedback, will be provided and discussed. Please join us for this interactive session in Bb Collaborate Ultra to examine and test Blackboard’s collaborative tools.
