Blackboard Learning System CE8 (former WebCT CE6) is the adopted elearning platform in MPI.
Blackboard can be used to create entire online courses, or to simply publish materials that supplement existing courses. It requires little technical expertise on the part of the developer of the educational material, or on the part of the student.
Blackboard courses are set up upon request from MPI teachers.
If you want to create your own online course using Blackboard, simply send an email to Blackboard Administrator - firstname.lastname@example.org - with the following information:
- Your Name
- Your School
- Your Contact Phone Number
- Your email address
- The course code and the full name of the course
- When you expect to offer this course online to students (e.g. semester 2, 2002/2003)
- Similar details about anyone else who will share the course design process
We will contact you directly to provide information on how to access and build your new online course.
