Technology Mediated Instruction

TMI is a department within the Office for Student Learning, dedicated to serving all BC faculty in their usage of instructional technology to enhance student success.

Mission Statement: "To encourage the appropriate use of educational technology by faculty, both within the classroom and in distance learning modalities, to promote student success and enhance access in accordance with the college’s mission and values."

TMI Announcements to Faculty

  • UPDATE: BC will transition from Bb to the Canvas LMS in June of 2016. Review the Academic Senate's formal recommendation and FAQ's for the transition.
                           Bb to Canvas

  • TMI support for Bb will sunset at the end of the SP16 semester.

  • Tutorials for common tasks for Bb are in the Bb User Community.

  • Updates on the Online Education Initiative (OEI).

  • Need documents scanned to PDF for use in Bb? We do that!


TMI supports all faculty and instructional programs in the use of Butte College's Learning Management System (LMS), currently Blackboard (Bb) Learn. We provide comprehensive faculty training in the use of Bb and the design of supplemental online resources, as well as fully online courses. We also train and support faculty in the usage of Respondus, an assessment authoring program for use with Bb. 

We provide individual, group, and departmental consultations for faculty upon request and by appointment. We do not offer "in-course" support directly to students. 

Our department has regular advisory meetings with the Academic Technology Committee (ATC) and the Distance Learning Committee (DLC), both of which report to the Butte College Academic Senate.

TMI is proud of our role in participatory governance, and observe faculty recommendations in our decision making process regarding the services we provide to further instructor effectiveness and student success.
