IS provides a series of regularly scheduled training sessions on myBlackboard, a course management system using Blackboard software. All UNO courses are provided a space within myBlackboard for the faculty to utilize to teach their courses. This web-based program allows for the quick and easy dissemination of information to students, provides an on-line testing feature, an online Gradebook, and provides several communication tools. The dates for this training can also be found on the Academic Partnership for Instruction (API) calendar.

Several times a year our trainers schedule Drop-In sessions for any faculy or staff to stop by our offices in EAB 104 and Ask a question. Faculty and staff will be notified of these sessions in advance through eNotes.
