OAK Training II: Communication and Collaboration 

How can I use OAK to alert students to important assignments and events?  How can I use OAK to support active learning and student engagement?  This session will provide hands-on practice with the communication tools and using journals, blogs, discussion boards and wikis in OAK.

Important: You will need to bring a laptop to this hands-on session.  Please prepare your laptop in advance by making sure that you have a Blackboard (OAK) compliant web browser.  On your laptop, go to the main Vanderbilt OAK page at and scroll to the bottom to the section called "Check my browser."  Follow the instructions to run the automated browser-checker, and use the "Browser Compatibility Matrix" and "Browser Settings Guide" as references.  You should also do this on any machine you plan to use toaccess OAK.
