Blackboard Training and Support
Several resources are in place to support the course management system, Blackboard. Whether you are considering Blackboard for the first time or an experienced user curious about trying out new features, we are sure you will find the support you need.
Multimedia Lab Facilities and Classroom Video Recordings
The CER also provides access to, and training on, faculty multimedia lab facilities. The lab enables you to scan slides and other images, create audio and video files, CD-ROMs, DVDs, and more. CER staff are available for assistance and one-on-one training upon request.
We can also arrange to have a video recording done of your teaching either for your own feedback or for your teaching portfolio.
To ensure sufficient technical support, you must reserve equipment ahead of time. Visit the equipment reservations page to see the equipment in the CER facility and make a reservation.
