Blackboard
If you had an assignment due in Blackboard, would you look for a piece of chalk? Blackboard used to mean a place to write on the wall now it is an interactive warehouse of information for your classes and coursework. This hands-on workshop will give you a chance to get into the internet-based website for your courses and teach you how to be prepared for whatever electronic assignments the professor sends your way. This class is strongly recommended for all new students.

Learning Styles
Every single person walks differently, talks differently, and dresses differently. We all dance differently, too. So, doesn t it stand to reason that we also learn in different ways? This workshop will give you a chance to find out about learning styles, the modalities you personally use to gather information, and how you can turn your learning styles into strengths. This workshop is recommended for anyone who doesn t feel he/she is getting the most learning out of time invested in studying.
