Every Blackboard course site is a virtual classroom. Just like your face-to-face classroom, it must be managed properly for students to learn there. In this presentation/ workshop, we will discuss how to manage your course content locally on your computer, bring it into Blackboard, and manage your content once it is on your course site.
