Blackboard training for the first group of teachers (called Cohort 1) started on Sept. 8. Blackboard is the Learning Management System (LMS) that has been purchased by Fayette County. Click HERE for more information on what an LMS is and how it can benefit your students.
Below are some of the details about the Blackboard implementation plan.
- Cohort 1 teachers will work closely with the FCIT (Fayette County Instructional Technology) department throughout the first implementation of this training class. This is to ensure we gather feedback and input on the class to make adjustments accordingly and stay in close communication with the Cohort 1 teams to maintain a high-level of support.
- Following the completion of the class with Cohort 1, FCIT will reach out to building administrators to request names of teachers who will be included in Cohort 2. (Please note: more information will be sent on Cohort 2 selection in the coming months).
- The Cohort 1 Team will be the first line of support for all subsequent Cohorts of teachers at your school.
