Just a reminder…there is an On Demand Help and Learning Catalog in every Blackboard course site. It is located on the My Institution page. This site has a wealth of information on assessment, communication and collaboration, building your course, Blackboard tools, etc. Tutorials are available in video and PDF format. There are resources here for both faculty and students.

Thank you to Ira Yermish (Decision & System Sciences) for sharing this video clip with us. His son, Howard, an adjunct faculty member and Internet Marketing Strategist, gives a great presentation on how to create an excellent presentation. The clip is a little over an hour and well worth your time.
The Read It Later browser extension allows you to save web pages of interest to read later offline. It eliminates cluttering of bookmarks with sites that are merely of a one-time interest. Read It Later adds a button in the address bar. Clicking the icon automatically adds the current page to your list in one click.
If you want to do some reading while away from an internet connection, on the plane or train, let Read It Later download your pages before disconnecting. Even when you lose your connection, you’ll still be able to access all of your pages. There is an option to convert any page to an optimized text-only view.
