Drake Online Design Dialogue Session

Drake Online & Continuing Education will be hosting brief bi-weekly sessions on developing online courses in Blackboard.

The sessions are open to all and will begin June 4 at 11:30 a.m. and continue every other Thursday at the same time. The sessions will be held in Blackboard Collaborate and hosted by Christina Trombley and Shannon Hilscher. 

Sessions will center around a single topic but will also allow for dialogue and questions. Sessions will also include faculty experienced in teaching online at Drake.

Please note: We have increased the number of available spots in these sessions because of high demand, so if you have had difficulty registering for these events in the past, that should be resolved now.


Tentative session topics are as follows:

• June 4 – Organizing your course

• June 18 – Discussion groups

• July 2 – Rubrics

• July 16 – Small Groups

• July 30 – Grade Center

• August 13 – Using Videos
