Juli 2006: Buildingblocks & Admin Training

The Blackboard Training team is pleased to announce two regional training workshops in Amsterdam, in July 2006. The training workshops provide intensive, hands-on instruction for system administrators and course developers.

Regional Training – Amsterdam, Netherlands

Blackboard Academic Suite Administration training shares the best practices learned from working with thousands of clients who have implemented Blackboard at their institution. It introduces the tools and functions accessible through the Administrator Panel, describes the delegated administration features of the application, reviews procedures for managing system extensions, and outlines procedures for maintaining system security. It does not provide instruction for managing the Blackboard application at the server level. This workshop covers the administrative features of three applications in the Blackboard Academic Suite including the Blackboard Learning SystemTM, Blackboard Community SystemTM, and Blackboard Content SystemTM.

Blackboard Building Blocks Essentials focuses on extending the Blackboard Learning SystemTM and how Building Block development principles apply to the Blackboard Content SystemTM and Blackboard Community SystemTM. The Blackboard Building Blocks Essentials workshop provides the conceptual knowledge and hands-on experience needed to develop high quality seamless extensions to the core Blackboard software. The workshop is intended for software developers with intermediate-level experience programming in Java as well as Servlet technologies. Prior experience with HTML, JSP and Java is very helpful. Extensive experience with Blackboard software is not required.

Participants are welcome to attend either or both workshops.
