Academic Catalog

As a student, this might be one of the most important documents you can reference. Gardner-Webb’s Academic Catalog contains the descriptions, requirements and prerequisites for Traditional Undergraduate, GOAL – The Degree Completion Program, and Graduate programs, in addition to details for completing each of the over 70 majors and minors in 14 areas of study. 

Blackboard Student Orientation

Purpose of Student Orientation

The Blackboard 9 Student User Orientation is designed to familiarize the student with the basic skills needed to succeed in an online, hybrid, or web-enhanced course. Topics include a general overview of the Blackboard system, recommended computer and browser specifications, navigating through the online environment, submitting work for evaluation (i.e., tests, assignments), using discussion boards, viewing grades and progress, and communicating with one’s instructors and classmates. The orientation is a combination of documents and tutorials, and is self-paced. At the conclusion is a short test designed to assess one’s overall understanding of Blackboard. Your professor will determine how and if this quiz will be utilized in your course. Students who have previously completed the orientation may proceed directly to the test, if required.
