Blackboard’s Grade Center is a flexible and configurable digital gradebook that enables transparency around student progress in a course. In this introduction, we will guide you through setting up the columns and settings so that you can efficiently and effectively communicate grades, feedback, and overall progress to students. We will discuss how to find student work, use rubrics, identify the icons you may see, as well as how to configure weighted totals for a final grade. Finally, we will also show you how students can locate their grades and the feedback you provide.

Teaching Online is a four-week online course offered each semester for Framingham State faculty and staff. Learn to create a clear course structure, align objectives with content, and make the online space interactive. Whether you are new or experienced with online or hybrid teaching, you are welcome to participate. You should plan to spend approximately 3-5 hours per week on the course. The course is mainly asynchronous but we do optional online check-ins through Blackboard Collaborate on Fridays at 1:00pm. The course starts with a kick-off orientation on Friday October 4th. You can participate virtually in Blackboard Collaborate from 1:00-2:00pm. The session will be recorded and you can still join the course if you’re unavailable for an orientation.
