Upcoming Workshops: Blackboard Retention Center & Reports

We’ve updated our fall workshop calendar to include December dates for sessions covering Blackboard retention center and reports. Join us!

At each session, IDS will present an overview of the relevant Blackboard features and then work collaboratively with each participant. Computers available but BYOD if you can.

  • Be aware of at-risk students with the Retention Center
  • Run a variety of reports to review student activity
  • Find relevant data to inform census date drops
  • Export grades and reports as PDFs
