BAC Training Camp Overview

The Blue Administrator Certification (BAC) training camp at the Bluenotes APAC 2020 conference is a part of a specially designed instructor-led, face-to-face BAC training program. This Blue Administrator Certification training is to be delivered in a blended format where face-to-face, hands-on training at the certification camp is combined with pre-camp self-directed learning activities. At the end of this hands-on BAC training camp, the camp participant will be at the certified Blue Administrator level, thus given the Blue Administrator Certification.

Who Should Attend?

This program is for people who will implement Blue, or be a part of a Blue implementation project, to automate their feedback processes such as course evaluations, institutional surveys, and 360 reviews. They can be any of the following:

  • Those who are to implement Blue in their institutions for the first time but have no or little knowledge of Blue yet,
  • Those who have some experience in using Blue, but have not taken any formal Blue training and wish to strengthen foundational Blue knowledge, or
  • Those who wish to refresh in the latest version of Blue

Having an understanding of basic database concepts (such as data structure) and program language concepts (such as the concept of variables) is a plus.

BAC Training Camp Structure

To elevate your learning experience, this specially designed instructor-led training camp will be structured as follows:

  • Self-learning before the camp: This self-directed online introduction to Blue consists of 1 days’ worth of material that you can finish at your own pace. This self-directed learning is to familiarize yourself with Blue concepts, terms and features, along with practice exercises to introduce you to creating course evaluations in Blue. This session must be completed prior to the 2-day face-to-face camp, to ensure that you will be ready to fully participate in and complete the training camp with Blue Administrator Certification.
  • Camp: A 2-day instructor-led camp that offers the hands-on participation and training required to be certified a Blue Administrator, and thus you will receive your Blue Administrator Certification at the end of the camp.

Key Benefits and Learning Outcomes

With the completion of the Blue Administrator Certification Training Program, a training participant will be able to:

  • Understand and apply basic Blue fundamental concepts, terminologies, and basic functionality to build and manage standard feedback processes using Blue, including:
    • Working with data sources and Blue’s project definitions
