NWCC eLearning gets upgrade
Northwest Mississippi Community College’s eLearning Division has added several new features that will allow students to better interact with instructors and classmates, according to Phyllis Johnson, dean of eLearning. These features include Blackboard 9.1, Pronto and iTunes University.
The current eLearning tool—Blackboard—is getting an upgrade, according to Johnson. Blackboard is a Web-based course management system designed to allow students and faculty to participate in online classes. Blackboard enables instructors to provide students with course materials, discussion boards, virtual chat, online quizzes, an academic resource center and more.
