Implement Your Plan

Step 4: Implement Your Plan

Once you have selected your technologies, be confident in implementing your plan if necessary.  To do so:

  • Using pre-established methods of communication to inform students that you are moving to an alternative mode of teaching in order to ensure a continuity of learning
  • In the initial communication, reiterate the use of Blackboard
  • Using the Announcement feature in Blackboard to communicate with students so they both receive an email of the Announcement as well as see the Announcement post when logging into their Blackboard course
  • Initiate discussions on Blackboard using the Discussion Board feature and encouraging students to post questions
  • Be sure to provide timely feedback to questions on the Discussion Board, as well as any assignments posted
