First Day of Classes Q&A
Look in CUNYfirst:
- if the Days&Times column mentions a day and time, your class is conducted synchronously: you’ll have to login to Blackboard and enter your class at the stated days and times, in synch with your prof and your classmates.
- if the Days&Times column says TBA, click on the class: in the Notes section you’ll learn that your class is taught asynchronously: it will have weekly learning units during which you’ll have to complete a set of assignments (interact with the course material, post in the discussion board, email your prof, collaborate with a classmate on a little project, take a quiz…) but within that week you can work on all these assignments when it best fits your schedule. No need to be in synch with your classmates or prof!
Blackboard, or Bb as we say, is a “Learning Management System” or “LMS;” like Google Classroom or PupilPath, it provides a virtual space in which your class can meet: where profs post materials, assignments and tests and where you can interact with them and your classmates. To learn more, visit Logging in to Blackboard page.
All CUNY buildings and offices require that all faculty, staff, and students complete the daily Symptom Checker before coming into the office or a Campus location. This simple Symptom Checker can be accessed from your mobile phone each day before your visit to a CUNY building.
