The @BlackboardK12 BITS Learning Sessions #5 #BbK12Live

I've partnered with BlackboardK12 to share out the awesome sessions they are having this Fall. Educators can sign up to attend and share with other great educators what they have learned. I'll feature the session and the description on my blog each week and on my Twitter account. If you have questions, feel free to shoot a tweet to @BlackboardK12. Have fun learning and sharing!

Blackboard Skills to Pay the Bills

Idaho Digital Learning has implemented a rubric to help assess teacher quality in each course. In this session we will demonstrate different tools and features of the Blackboard LMS that enable teachers to meet expectations in each rubric category.
