Flipping your course with Blackboard 


Google Sites FOR Wiki's and Websites



If you have heard of "Flipping Instruction" how about learning
how to 
use your Blackboard course site to flip elements of
course this fall? Join us!
Instead of your students presenting with Powerpoint or Prezi
try assigning 
them to create and then present a wiki or a
using "Google Sites".  Students can create a site as
an individual or 
collaboratively with others. Join us!
