College of the Mainland is working hard to provide the best online learning environment available for our students. Blackboard Learn is the latest release of the most widely used course management system in the world. All class types (Internet, Hybrid, Web Enhanced and Classroom) will have a presence on the system in varying degrees.
This orientation module is a brief tour of the most widely used course tools.
This is not intended to replace the Online Learner Workshop, which is required before enrolling in an Internet or Hybrid type course. For more information on the required workshop please visit the Online Learner Workshop info page: http://www.com.edu/de/olw.cfm
College of the Mainland provides support for our online students through our Distance Education - Instructional Technology Support Center. Here you will find answers to frequently asked Blackboard questions, access to downloads and plugins, the ability to Submit a Support ticket and to "chat" with a live distance education staff member. Students can find additional useful information at the Support for Students area of the Blackboard.com web site.
I want to thank you for enrolling in one of the sections that is piloting our new Learn system and hope that you will provide constructive feedback on it's new features and ease of use when asked.
