Blackboard virtual support surpasses 2,000 milestone

The Centre for Teaching and Learning is celebrating another milestone, as it recently surpassed 2,000 support sessions in its Bb Café, a virtual drop-in for users of the Blackboard learning management system.

Anoop Gupta, an instructor in the Faculty of Education and Department of Psychology, was the 2,000th visitor to the Bb Café and received a $50 Amazon gift card to mark the occasion.

Dr. Gupta appreciates the assistance he has received in the Bb Café.

“Bb Café has been an invaluable resource through the COVID-19 pandemic,” he says. “It has added octane to my teaching.”

Staffed by helpful co-operative education and part-time Ignite students, the Bb Café has continued to be the backbone of Blackboard support since its inception in March 2020 as part of the emergency response to COVID-19.

Instructors and their assistants can access the Bb Café at uwindsor.ca/bbcafe during the extended exam hours of 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to Friday, and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. After Aug. 23, hours return to Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
