Did you know that Blackboard can be used for more than academic courses? This session will share how academic and administrative departments have leveraged Blackboard Community's capabilities to address departmental gaps, foster community, and better prepare incoming students for their major. Join us to learn about UAlbany's outreach program and gain a sneak peek at what others are doing to improve the student experience and streamline administrative processes.

Outcomes: Identify at least 3 options to leverage Blackboard Community to facilitate student engagement or streamline administrative processes * Identify gaps and needs across your campus that could be addressed through your LMS * Conduct an outreach program designed to facilitate faculty, staff, and student usage of Blackboard Community
