Blackboard - Beyond the Basics

Move beyond the basic needs of Blackboard into a world of creativity and style. There are so many areas within Blackboard to help make your life easier and provide students with a user-friendly atmosphere.

The simplicity of using these great tools can enhance the class and provide users with other resources which are available to them. Why not use a video to demonstrate how the wings of a hummingbird move? Why not use an image of an author when discussing their work? Why not use an audio sound clip of the pronunciation of a word when teaching language?

Most videos, images, and audio, can be embedded via the html code carets. The image below shows a quick view of the process. You may be surprised at how many web sites make HTML code available to you!
