Blogs, Wikis and Journals: New Ways to Collaborate and Communicate with Students in Blackboard

Monday, November 19, 2012 at 2:00pm to 3:30pm

Using Blackboard, faculty can take advantage of several social communication tools, such as blogs, wikis and journals, to create interactive and collaborative activities for students. In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn the features and uses of the communication tools and practice creating, participating in and grading blogs, wikis and journals. Additionally, we will identify the types of activities that these tools can be used for. Advance registration is required. Register online at
