Jacob will be out on Medical leave during November, but no worries! We’ve enlisted the help of a Blackboard Certified Trainer directly from the company and Thomas Sosebee is stepping in to lend a hand. Because of this, we’ve been able to add a few more sessions to the schedule! Please check out the How-to Session Schedule for the additions. We’ve even added a brand new session called:
Q&A With a Blackboard Certified Trainer
Just like the name implies these sessions will be available for you to bring your ideas, questions and quandaries and ask a Certified Trainer directly from Blackboard.
