Implementation of a furlough for faculty is complicated. In theory, the current furlough calls for a 10% reduction in work time, which translates, generally, to 2 days per month of non-work. On furlough days, your instructor is forbidden from working which includes checking emails and course websites. Blackboard We will use Blackboard throughout the semester. This is the primary contact for the class. Assignments will be posted and collected via Blackboard, thus, it is imperative that you become familiar with how to navigate this website.
