Join us for “Enhancing Classroom Experiences with Technology,” one of our quick 15-minute virtual sessions will introduce various technologies to enhance the classroom experience.

Meet virtually with a member of the Technology Training Team at noon* on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays during June for a demonstration on a technology feature in Blackboard or program that you might want to incorporate into your classroom/hybrid/online instruction. The team will stay online for another 15 minutes to answer any questions you have on that day’s topic.
