I just moved into a new role at Blackboard, working with clients on the awesome Empower Programs we have developed to get clients heavily involved in our design and development process. In the last month of 2011, I was lucky enough to work with over 100 Blackboard clients, partners and developers as we kicked off our Beta Programs in preparation for the release of our newest software Blackboard Learn Release 9.1, Service Pack 8.
These beta programs are important because they allow us to get feedback on the client’s upgrade experience, test the quality of the installer, as well as help developers and partners test out their building blocks with the new release – allowing us to help them resolve any issues prior to general availability of the software.
Hi Blackboard Users! I am one of the Blackboard Learn Product Marketers and am back to share more about how educators are using the Content Collection in Blackboard Learn to make life easier and save time.
I started this conversation at the end of last year and after having my son and being away from the office for a few months I am finally picking it back up. For the first two tips I shared please check my previous blog.
Before I dive in, I want to share a great introduction video for people just getting familiar with the Content Collection (or Content Management module). This was created by Melissa Kern, our Lead Designer for the Content Management module, and is good to share with new users or any educators that haven’t had a chance to check out the content management tools in Blackboard Learn. This product video is on Release 9.1, SP6. Take a look and pass along!

Hello and Happy Thanksgiving for those of you in the U.S. My name is Klaire Marino. I work on Blackboard’s Product Marketing team and spend my time focused on the Content Management module (which some of you probably still fondly refer to as the Content System). In this role I get to spend a lot of time talking to clients about what they are doing with these cool tools in Blackboard Learn. I also talk to clients about new ways they can leverage these tools and get even more value out of them. While these one-on-one conversations are great, there’s a lot to share so I wanted to bring that discussion to the blog so others could chime in as well. Let’s see how it works.
