Online learning is a popular method for graduate nursing programs. Today, we live in a rapidly evolving society. Many students live at a distance from the university setting. They have a family and a job; but also want to advance their education. Courses need to be student friendly and stimulating. In many of the Graduate courses, the Department of Nursing added a variety of tools to keep the course content challenging for the student. Students in general have varying learning preferences. Some students are more comfortable with technology than others. Blackboard Learning is already simulated with a variety of tools including Learning Activities, Discussion Board, Quizzes and Exams. Additional tools are necessary to enhance learning and collaboration. Students are asked to submit an anonymous evaluation of the course midterm and at the end of the course for ongoing improvement.
