We here at William & Mary’s Academic Information Services (AIS) are always happy to meet with faculty members to help them with any technology-related academic issues. Take a look at these tutorials for three popular sets of technology tools to help you, or contact your academic technology specialist for individual help.
Course Management with Blackboard
You can find W&M’s Blackboard tutorials here. Provided by the AIS staff at the College, these tutorials will help you with the most common and useful Blackboard features. If you don’t see a help topic you’re interested in here, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Mike Blum at email@example.com.
You can find WMwikis tutorials here. William & Mary holds a Private Label license with Wikispaces, called WMwikis. All members of the W&M community are invited to create and collaborate using this tool. Our tutorials provide demonstrations of the most frequently asked questions from WMwikis users. If you don’t see a help topic you’re interested in here, please contact April Lawrence at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Build a Website or Blog with WordPress
You can find W&M’s WordPress tutorials here. W&M uses WordPress to run approximately 600 blogs and websites through blogs.wm.edu. Anyone with a W&M email address can sign up for an account and can easily publish their own website. If you need help with WordPress and would like a tutorial not already available, please send an email to email@example.com.
