This is a companion to the Blackboard Survival Guide. It contain all of the information that our instructors need to get grading done within their online course, and calculate final grades. The goal of hit Survival Guide is to cover the key topics that everyone needs to consider as they set up their online grading spreadsheets. My hope was that someone could pick this up, and have all the information they need at their disposal–without ever having to attend a training session or get one-on-one help. Instructors don’t have a lot of time–I get that! The goal, as always, is to make things a little bit easier.
