On Campus Support

Blackboard Learn Orientation Sessions:

To gain access to the new Blackboard Learn system, you need to attend one of the 2-hour Learn Orientations. It is preferred that you attend the session with your school/department, but if you are unable to attend that session, you are welcome to attend one of the other sessions.  The list of orientation sessions below will be updated as other offerings are scheduled.

Open Lab schedule schedule:

Checked with your friends?  Still can’t figure it out? Stop by an open lab session to get your question answered. See the open lab sessions listed in the calendar below

If there is a specific topic with which you and your colleagues would like additional assistance, we are happy to offer additional sessions for groups of at least 3 faculty.  If you have a group for which you’d like to schedule a session, please email mycourses@purduecal.edu with the names of the faculty members, topic of session, and your requested day/time (giving a few scheduling options is preferred).
