IDEA will use an XT (external) community within Ball State’s Blackboard Learning Management System. Staff from the CTE and academic partners will manage the community and the projects being conducted by the apprentices.

After you have completed the online request to joing IDEA, you will be provided with access to the IDEA Blackboard community, in which you can select projects and interact with apprentices, mentors and clienst involved in IDEA.

Once you are in the Bb community, go to the Blackboard site (in Internet Explorer or Firefox):

my.bsu.edu

and look for the community called “CTE, including iStudio and IDEA”

Stay tuned for more information about the community.
