How to Get Started Teaching Online
The majority of our teaching faculty are currently using Blackboard in their face-to-face courses. Others are using other online tools for information dissemination and their course activities.
- All courses automatically have a Blackboard space created. You can access it using your Brockport NetID and password
“Blackboard 101 – Accelerated Online Preparation” instructional resource guide:This guide can be found in Blackboard under “My Organizations” list, and is labeled "Brockport Training".
If you're new to using Blackboard, there are substantial resources available on the campus Blackboard support page .
- Lecture capture can be used to create instruction available on demand.
Stay tuned for information regarding upcoming workshops in the coming weeks. We will be working closely with those who wish to begin utilizing online tools and need assistance.
