Technology Training

Schedule an Individual Training Session or Departmental Workshop

In an effort to accommodate faculty schedules, CELTIC normally plans multiple workshop sessions around each topic. We are also happy to arrange special workshop scheduling for a department or other faculty group. In addition, we are always ready to arrange individual training or consultation on any matter related to faculty use of technology or library information sources. Please contact CELTIC to discuss how we can best address your training needs or the needs of your department or program.

  • Blackboard - Setting up the Grade Center

    In this workshop, we help you set-up your Grade Center so that it mirrors your grading schema.

    The Grade Center functions as your digital grade book, allowing you to record data, calculate grades, and monitor student progress. You can provide and manage your students' grades for Blackboard's collaborative and asessments tools, and create grade columns for any activities or requirements you want to grade, such as special projects, participation, or attendance. In addition, you can determine which assigned grades to show to your students in My Grades- one of students' favorite features in Blackboard.
