Goodbye, Blackboard

Many of you have heard that we are losing access to Blackboard by the start of spring semester. We are holding two more informational meetings about the transition away from Blackboard on Thursday, February 10 or Monday, February 14 from 12:45 to 1:30 in C333. Please RSVP to Heather or Liz if you plan to attend.

We will talk about blogs and wikis as possible replacements for Blackboard, and we'll also introduce the course management features of software called Digication. This is the same software students use to build their e-Portfolios when they enter the credit side of LaGuardia, so it makes sense that some teachers may choose to adopt it. (The video below demonstrates the e-Portfolio aspects of the software.)
