Do you ever wonder what a student feels like when they first visit a Blackboard course? Are they overwhelmed? Do they know what to do, where to go or who to ask for help? That is why SHSU Online has put together the Getting Started: Blackboard Student Orientation course for all SHSU students. We have included it as a link in all Online courses for the Summer. Students can also get there by clicking the Getting Started Tab at the top of the Blackboard window in their Internet browser.
One of the resources we make available in the Getting Started course is an icon legend that allows them to know what types of items are commonly used in courses and what they are. Below, you will see the Icon Legend we have available under the Where do I go From Here? section under the Course Environment learning module.
