One Week Before Class Starts

One Week Before the Class Starts…

  1. Send your students a welcome letter that tells them:
    1. The URL of the course. (Direct Link: http://ilearn-bridgevalley.wvnet.edu)
    2. How to login (Normally students log into the course through their MyBridge account. (The username is their B number and the password is their six digit birthdate.)
    3. What materials they need to purchase and where to can get them
    4. Who to contact if they need technical assistance (Password reset 304.734.6600 and Blackboard reset 293.5192. )
    5. Reinforce course prerequisites – What are they? How necessary are the prerequisites? Will you enforce them?
  2. If you do not want your student so see some content hide the selected class materials from student view. (Optional)
  3. Post a “Welcome Announcement” for your students.
    1. Tell your students to begin the class by reviewing the syllabus and working through your class orientation materials. Provide any addition directions for those materials!
    2. Remind students of the official class start date.
