Welcome to the Blackboard Faculty Resource Center for SHSU Online. Blackboard is looking a little different than it used to. SHSU has successfully upgraded to Blackboard 9.1.8, which gives you a new and improved user interface as well as new options for integrating content from the web and creating interactive assignments for your students.

This Resource center contains 5 different areas that will help you in your quest to become more blackboard literate.

Learn how to navigate Blackboard's user interface, manage users, add and edit course content, copy materials from one course to another, and more.

Communications. E-mail the students, groups and Teaching Assistants in your course. Messaging allows you to send messages inside Blackboard they only appear in the course where they are contained. The attached document will introduce you to the communication tools inside Blackboard Learn.
