Learn Tutorials for Faculty

Here you can find a listing of all the videos, documentation and other materials that we have made available regarding Drexel Learn for faculty. Video listings will have a running time for their length while a document will have a number of pages.

The majority of these materials come directly from Blackboard through their On Demand Learning Center. As needed, the Online Learning Team will be creating new resources. If you find that there is something missing, please send your request to olt@drexel.edu and let us know what resource would be helpful for you.
