In an effort to help all new student users acclimate to our Blackboard environment, we are now offering nightly live Blackboard Collaborate sessions from 7 pm to approximately 9 pm from Thursday of week 4 (starting tomorrow night 7/24) through Thursday of week 1 (7/31) and will continue indefinitely moving forward, every week 4 through week 1.
These sessions are given by our top full-time faculty members. They can answer questions students may have in navigating their online classroom. Please promote these sessions at your campuses. As a reminder your students will need to use the browser FireFox and have JAVA to be able to participate in the Blackboard Collaborate sessions. These sessions are being conducted in the student orientation course each new student user is automatically enrolled in. They just need to click on “Keiser Live” once they are in the student orientation course. This is located on the left hand side of the navigation screen under the “how to use Keiser Live” tutorial.
If you would like to show what the demo and student orientation course looks like with your students new to online, there is a generic class and log in you can showcase at your campuses. Just go to the URL: https://keiseruniversity.blackboard.com. For the generic username and password, use kudemo for both. Once you put in the username and password and click log in, click on “my courses” at the top left-hand side of your screen and you will see the demo course and orientation course. This is NOT the course for the week 1 and week 4 live sessions. This is just a generic course environment to use for an example.
Please let me know if you have questions. ☺
