The New Blackboard:  What you need to know to transition from version 8.6 to 9.1 (LC)

This hands–on workshop is designed for Fordham University Faculty and Staff teaching term based courses that will utilize Blackboard. This session provides instructors with an overview of the changes and new features in Blackboard 9.1. Version 9.1 has a different interface and offers several new options for course content.  Since instructors will be able to set up their course on Blackboard during this session, they should bring a copy of all files that they would like to post. Instructors will be guided through the process step-by-step with the opportunity to schedule a one-on-one training for advanced features, or stop by the walk-in sessions with specific questions.
