Change seems to be a constant at The College of St. Scholastica, and these promise to be exciting times for those who manage and teach online or blended courses. In addition to moving our courses to an off-site or 'managed hosting' solution, we now have access to new functionality that is either built into Blackboard or is provided as a complementary feature.

In addition to Blackboard upgrades like electronic portfolios, Wimba Web conferencing, Presidium 24/7 Blackboard Help Desk services, and Smarthinking tutoring services are further enhancements that will increase our ability to provide a premiere experience for those who are teaching and learning in the online environment at St. Scholastica.

We hope this Web page will provide a useful introduction to some of these new services and resources.
