This fully-online certification course provides the Blackboard instructor with the knowledge and skills in both the acquisition and implementation of multimedia for online/face-to-face and hybrid courses. Technologies and best practices are examined in the context of student engagement and success.

Specifically course participants will cover:

  • Finding, placing and crediting images in Blackboard courses.
  • Finding and placing YouTube videos in Blackboard courses.
  • Finding and placing NBC Learn content in Blackboard courses.
  • Using Kaltura CaptureSpace Lite to place audio, video and screen captures in your Blackboard course.
  • Adding interactive video quizzes to your Blackboard course using Kaltura.
  • Best practices around using multimedia in your Blackboard course.

The course will begin on June 1st and is a self-paced course, though we encourage you to interact with those colleagues who are in the course with you. Visit the SHSU Online Faculty Development How-to Session page to sign up.

Course content is found in each module in a sequential format using a Blackboard Learning Unit/Module tool.  Course content opens in new tabs for easier reading.  At the end of each learning unit, participants will have the opportunity to download module contents via a PDF file link.
