2021 Blackboard, Panopto, and ZOOM Training for New Teachers, TAs, and Supporting Staff

2021-22 Term 1 is round the corner. Join us to learn how to use Blackboard, Panopto, and ZOOM to support your teaching and support tasks now to get ready for the new semester.

We are learners, and we know different people have different learning styles.  We are excited to announce that we are now offering a series of briefing sessions, a quick start checklist, self-paced online courses, and self-help materials to suit your different training needs.

1. Briefing sessions with feature demo

Short briefing sessions (45min each) delivered by ITSC eLearning Support Team over ZOOM to introduce the features (with demo).

2. Blackboard Quick Start Checklist and Comprehensive Instructor Guide

After you have joined the Blackboard briefing session(s), we suggest you requesting a sandbox (blank testing Blackboard course) from us (elearning@cuhk.edu.hk) and go through our Blackboard Quick Start Checklist for Staff to try out the basic (essential) features.

Once you master the basic features, you are highly suggested to go through the comprehensive Blackboard Instructor Guide to select additional features you would like to use to support your teaching and support tasks and try them out in your sandbox.

3. Self-paced Blackboard Online Training Courses
