Blackboard Quick Start for Faculty Delivering Courses Remotely: Home

Created due to COVID-19 university closure, faculty quarantine, or student quarantine.

This LibGuide is for faculty members who may need to cancel class due to inclement weather, illness, or any other event that may keep students or faculty members from being on campus. It is not completely comprehensive, but will have enough information for faculty to continue their courses in case of emergency. If you have any questions, or need any assistance, please email OnlineLearning@marshall.edu or send us a message in the right hand column for immediate assistance during business hours (M-F 8:30am - 4:30pm)

The schedule and links for these events are found in our team:
