OHIO Chillicothe OULN Course Material Planning

If your course requires the distribution of handouts, quizzes and/or tests, you will soon realize that distributing this paperwork to the other regional campuses and offering makeup tests or exams, are the only major differences between teaching in a traditional classroom on your campus and teaching in a distance learning environment. With proper planning and adequate time management, the gap created by the physical distance between you and your students can easily be bridged. 

BlackBoard Course Site

All of your course documents and tests can be posted to your course site, as an alternative to having materials physically duplicated, and tests physically administered in the OULN classroom. The Ohio University Office of Information Technology Service Desk 740.593.1222 is available to answer questions about BlackBoard, and the BlackBoard website offers many self-help guides.
