  • Knowing OL Faculty are Ready

    Early version of certification: participants did readings on pedagogy, took tests, built content in Blackboard. Alternate version: take test, submit portfolio of existing work (doesnt

    necessarily have to be in Blackboard).

    Focus was on knowledge/understandingof online pedagogy.

  • What was missing? Knowledge of Bb

    I know Blackboard = I used Blackboard as an undergrad

    I used Blackboard as an instructor ten years ago

    I know what Blackboard is (but that doesnt mean I know how to use it)

    I know Canvas, so that must be the same, right?

    Can work through pedagogy, but have no understanding of how to navigate Blackboard.

    ?

  • What was missing? AIC Policies

    How to submit grades?

    Where to send students for help?

    What counts as attendance?
