Doing More with Blackboard : Top Tips
We’ve all experienced at some point whilst browsing the internet a website from hell. They usually have some glaringly obvious problem which the web designer somehow managed to overlook. Sometimes it’s a poorly selected colour palete, a huge amount of information/text overload or a frustrating navigation menu. Some of these issues are encountered by students when they access Blackboard module sites.
This session will show some hints and tips that staff can use to, hopefully, improve navigation, aesthetics, accessibility and enhance the student user experience in their Blackboard modules.

PRESENTER (S): Simon Gibbon
This session is part of SALT's September IT activities. Forming a key element of Make Once Change, come and see how some IT Resources can Work for your Students. In particular, we're celebrating our newly refurbished training room.
Where is the SALT Training Room (aka Green Room)?
Are you offering these sessions at the Bay Campus or St. David's Park Campus?
Not at this time and videoconferencing isn't feasible due to the interactive nature of these workshops. However if you'd really like to explore some of the applications that we're covering, we'll liaise with Colleges who have staff on the other Campuses to make alternate arrangements.
I am unable to climb stairs...how else can I participate?
Unfortunately there is no lift access to the training room. Please do let us know if you have any access considerations well in advance of the session and we will strive to make alternative arrangements with you.
What should I bring to the event?
Please bring some lunch. Other refreshments will be provided.
A mobile device, preferably laptop/IPad/Tablet to enable full participation and gain the most benefit from the session.
How does this session contribute to my Continuing Professional Development (CPD)?
Each session has been mapped against the most applicable dimensions of the UKPSF. If you're working towards Fellowship, your attendance, reflection and possible application of what you've learnt will contribute to you meeting A5 of the UKPSF. If you're already a Fellow, then it will assist you in demonstrating good standing. Don't forget to write up a reflection on the session afterwards!
Who should I contact with any questions?
Please email email@example.com
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
What if I can't attend
Please cancel your ticket as soon as possible as spaces are limited.
