TCC Blackboard Template

All online courses at Tidewater Community College are delivered within an approved Blackboard template using the course design principles of Quality Matters. TCC faculty designed and revised in response to suggestions by faculty and the Faculty Senate. The template addresses standards from the QM Rubric™ to ensure that course navigation is logical, consistent, and efficient, and it provides students a consistent experience in online learning. The template does not dictate content; rather, it is designed to help faculty organize and deploy discipline content through a unit or weekly organization and to pre-populate for faculty many resources related to student services, communications, and student engagement that not only address QM standards but assist student achievement in the course.
