Online Faculty Resources


Blackboard Ultra Tutorial Videos

KSU faculty, we have assembled a set of videos to support your efforts to deliver quality online instruction.  The videos begin with logging into the Blackboard Learning Management System and cover a variety of topics to support faculty in communication, learner engagement, course design, and assessment.  Each video segment is ADA compliant, supported with captioning, audio, and length of time for each segment. As an added benefit, KSU provides all faculty with a quick start guide and a course design, self-paced training to support student-centered learning.

Please note:  KSU provides faculty we have four course design templates you may use to support your course designing process.  Please contact the Office of Online Education to access these templates.
