You can also call us at 615-322-0200, email for online support, or take advantage of our extensive collection of online tutorials and walkthroughs .

Drop-in Support

During drop-in hours, faculty and staff who have Blackboard-related questions can stop by the workshop space of the CFT (even without an appointment) and find a team of specialists ready to assist. We can get you up to speed with Blackboard’s new features, assist with building your course content, or help you solve technical problems. We will begin each drop-in session with a quick 10-minute training on a specific topic, then address any other issues or questions participants bring.

See our Drop-In Hours page for the current schedule.
