WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW!
Once you have accessed your course through Blackboard, familiarize yourself with the course page to locate your syllabus and course due dates. Your course may incorporate streaming media, which contains videos where you will gain information similar to if you were listening to a lecture in a face-to-face classroom. If you do not have dependable internet access, most of the course videos are available on DVD in the Distance Learning department. In addition, the Blackboard course page will also indicate if you are required to contact the Distance Learning office to obtain any supplemental materials.
Come and see us if you need help learning how to use Blackboard, or have any questions about what is expected of you in your distance courses.

PROBLEMS WITH BLACKBOARD…
Remember that instructors have until the first
day of class to make the Blackboard page available to students, so be patient.
*Watching video lectures does not take the place of reading assigned texts – make sure to complete assignments in both areas.
