About the Group

Technical Office Hours is a weekly hour-long session dedicated to Blackboard’s technical users. We gather with System Administrators, Developers, and anyone else that wants to join to discuss on-going issues, talk about what’s coming up for Blackboard users, and share what’s going on with each other. We provide webinars and training from time-to-time, but generally, this is an hour of open discussion driven by the participants. To join, simply visit https://bit.ly/AT-Techies-office-hours-MS-TEAMS at 11am ET every Wednesday.

Take part in the Discussion
