USM's Online Learning Support Specialist, Shane O'Hara, presents the new features now available with Blackboard's latest service pack update.
The new Blackboard service pack offers a wide number of new features and updated tools. Shane will focus primarily on the bigger changes, in particular the new Inline Assignment Grader, the new look and feel to Discussion Forums, and the new Retention Center. He will also discuss how users can best take advantage of the new "My Blackboard" services. Additional features may be covered as well.
This workshop will be held on Thursday, August 8th from 12-1pm in room 423/424 of the Glickman Library on the USM Portland Campus.
This is a great opportunity to get up to speed on the new features before the Fall 2013 semester begins.
This is a brown bag workshop - please feel free to bring your lunch.
This workshop will be recorded.
The new service pack includes feature releases from both service pack 10 and 12. The following links will bring you to Blackboard's "What's New" site for each release.
