In addition to a new look and feel, you will find new features that offer ways to improve the functionality of Blackboard tools and to improve both your teaching and technical experience. Topics include:

  1. New Content Editor with more options for math, video, tables, etc.
  2. New Video Gallery options using Kaltura Media
  3. New Video Anywhere using YouTube
  4. New format for Discussion
  5. New "inline" grading
  6. New Test Features - Item Analysis, new options for fill in blank questions
  7. New Retention Center
  8. New "My Blackboard" and Social Community

Another new addition to Blackboard this fall is Kaltura Media which provides video gallery options in Blackboard courses. With Kaltura Media faculty can include video that can be embedded into their own course galleries or shared with other courses and faculty. Kaltura will also be used as the new system for Classroom Capture.


At the conclusion of the event, participants will be able to:

  • locate the new features
  • practice with the new features they choose to incorporate into their course sites
  • locate additional resources for futher study of the new features

The two goals of this workshop are to facilitate quick understanding and adoption of the new features that will both enrich the teaching and learning experience for both faculty and students and to help faculty members determine ways to be more efficient.
