The following is a list of upcoming training opportunities for faculty that wish to learn more about Blackboard Learn. The list will be updated to remove past and add new events.

"Sneak Peek" sessions are brief overviews of the Blackboard Learn system and are aimed at showing how SCCC has set the system up for our faculty and students.
