This presentation focuses on the use of Blackboard Learn™ to teach design history to entry-level design degree students (250-300 a semester). The teaching methods include a holistic approach that involves shaping Blackboard Learn into a visually engaging and lively interactive environment that makes use of the Discussion Board for online tutorials involving discussion, learning tasks, and assessment activities. A team teaching approach for over 10 years has produced a large body of experience and student feedback that this presentation will draw on. While wary of the effectiveness of Blackboard Learn and teaching online for entry-level undergraduates, our experiences indicate there are many benefits and that we are able to offer students a rich learning experience that is as good or better than the traditional face to face approach.
