Resources for Getting started With Blackboard

For instructors who are new to Blackboard or who just want a refresher, there are a number of ways to learn.

  1. See the recently-launched CTL resource, “Teaching with Blackboard.”
  2. For general one-on-one help setting up your course and getting to know Bb, you may wish to visit our Open Hours for support.
  3. Keep an eye on our events calendar, as we periodically offer Blackboard intro courses, which cover such topics as:
    • Introduction to Bb (the what’s and the where’s)
    • Grade Center set up
    • Communication tools
    • Grading with rubrics
    • Delivering tests and assessments
  4. There are many help files and documentation articles available on our site, as well as on, (to which UVM subscribes – see how to log in and access Lynda materials).
  5. For a deeper dive into teaching fully online, the CTL offers a four-week, cohort-based, 100% online course known as “Teaching Effectively Online (TEO).” Find out more about this program, including application details and upcoming session start dates, on the TEO webpage.
