Events and Webinars

Join us to hear how two institutions enhanced their support services with Blackboard's 24/7/365 support services. Cowley College will share how they went from an institution with "just in time" support services to a forward-thinking institution able to fully support the technology needs of faculty and students all while migrating from ANGEL to Blackboard Learn 9.1. Between the detailing reporting and their dedicated support manager, the team at Cowley College is now able to focus on faculty training and resources. You'll also hear how the eCampus technology team at Dallas County Community College District changed their student and faculty support model. DCCCD went from 100 voicemails per hour, long wait times and student complaints to a 24/7/365 support desk with password reset technologies and satisfaction rates over 85%.

More and more studies report a paradigm shift from teaching to learning -- moving away from facilitating lectures of facts towards promoting skills of self-study, analysis and individual learning paths; from courses built using a single textbook to a "best of" approach of available publisher materials and faculty-created content; and from static content to dynamic digital assets that engage learners, providing real-time feedback. That's why Blackboard and McGraw-Hill Higher Education are committed to continually driving the print-to-digital transformation.

Join Tim Rogers, Business Professor at Ozarks Technical College, as he discusses how the McGraw-Hill Connect and Blackboard integration has simplified his and his students' course experience, saved time, and increased student engagement. Tim will share how he uses the technology to help students master concepts including:

  • Features and functionality of the combined solution
  • How to get started
  • Other tips on how to take advantage of McGraw-Hill content and tools directly within Blackboard Learn
