The Davenport University Online Bookstore is now open for spring/summer session 2 classes! We highly recommend students purchase all course materials directly from the bookstore using your DU email address. When you log in, you will see all textbooks assigned to your registered courses.
Are you interested in engaging students using technology in your Blackboard course? Are you an early adopter of technology?
If you’ve answered yes to the above questions, we’d like to invite you to be a part of the Blackboard VoiceThread pilot the Global Campus is launching for Spring/Summer Session 2.
VoiceThread is a learning tool integrated into Blackboard to enhance student engagement by creating, sharing and commenting on images, presentations, videos, audio files, documents and PDFs, using audio and/or video. To learn more, review What is VoiceThread?

For Sue Nemmers ‘85, Davenport University is a special place for two generations of her family. “Both my daughter, Rachel, and I started at Davenport in pursuit of a business education but gained so much more. Though we attended 25 years apart, we gained very similar experiences, friendships and a foundation for our success. It is our home.” Learn why in a sneak peek of their DU Review story on the alumni blog – http://blogs.davenport.edu/alumninews/
