All Michener courses have an online presence in our Learning Management System, Blackboard Learn. Using Blackboard, instructors can post their Learning Plans (including documents, presentations, animations and short streaming video clips) to enhance the delivery of their course and enable student learning. Backboard supports seamless communication between students and between instructors and students through the use of discussion boards, e-mail, synchronous chat and Virtual Classroom tools, blogs, wikis, journals and more! Student performance can be evaluated using Blackboard’s many Assessment tools, including tests, quizzes and assignments. Instructors can manage and evaluate student performance through the Grade Centre which can be used in Blackboard Learn or exported for offline editing in a spreadsheet application such as Microsoft Excel. Michener’s Blackboard Learn system can be accessed by registered users at: michener blackboard

iClicker is a wireless, interactive student response system. Instructors can create a series of questions with multiple choice responses and get instant feedback from students. No hardware or software installation is required and your questions can be created in the software of your choice such as Microsoft Word, PowerPoint or an old fashioned overhead projector sheet. Results are compiled into an easy to read Excel spreadsheet for further review. Michener has 200 iClickers available for use in your class on a first-come-first-served basis.
