So OK. I’ve now imported all the posts from Dave’s old “Blackboard for Faculty” blog which had been maintained at WordPress.com to the new one (this one). Recall that we are consolidating all our departmental blogs into one. We will still maintain less formal, personal blogs, but that’s another story.
The same goes for Dave’s blog as with Haydn’s, the one I imported yesterday. The articles are now merged into the back catalog of this blog. Since they may be a bit hard to find, I would like to draw attention to the more significant ones here. They are certainly worth revisiting. Dave’s blog tended to be more topical than Haydn’s since it is tied to our Blackboard implementation and that is, and always will be, a work in progress. Today’s hot issues are tomorrow’s forgotten trivia. It’s just the nature of the beast. I have not drawn attention to Dave’s articles in the list of links below that were tied to system outages, new features which are no longer new, or any date-bound topical discussions. Nevertheless, Dave has produced a number of timeless articles, and here they are:
- Blackboard Satisfaction Survey Results – Dislikes
- Blackboard Satisfaction Survey Results – Likes
- Blackboard Satisfaction Survey Results – First Look
- Avoiding Audio Assumptions
- Passwords are secret, really!
- Ding Dong the Digital Dropbox is Dead
- Teaching with Blackboard Review, Examining Plans
- Walking the Campus
- Reliability Wins!
- Reliability vs. Uptime
- Big Brother is Watching
- Blackboard: A Class Act
- Blackboard, Publisher Content, and the Future
- What’s in a Name?
- Getting Your Bb Course Ready
Stand by for more from Dave, and the rest of the crew in Academic Technology, in this blog.
