BlackboardTV (or "BbTV") is a new, multimedia initiative to help e-Learning innovators — designers, instructors, students — visualize online teaching and learning.
Look for BbTV crew members filming during BbWorld Commerce ’08 in Phoenix (March 9-12), and at DevCon ’08 and BbWorld ’08 in Las Vegas (July 14-15 and July 15-18, respectively). We’ve archived a wealth of video resources at the BlackboardTV Channel on YouTube, and each Saturday we’ll post a video here on EducateInnovate, such as:
- Works about the global Blackboard community of users created by BbTV producers
- Instructional videos produced by Blackboard users, with tips for teaching and learning online
- Thought-provoking or witty clips about education and technology
- Cool videos we stumble across and just plain like
For our first recommendation, it seems appropriate to post a brief (1:35) informational video created by McDaniel College and posted originally to YouTube, demonstrating how to add a YouTube clip to your Blackboard environment:
McDaniel College, a private, four-year liberal arts college with 1,600 students, is located in Westminster, MD, about 30 miles northwest of Baltimore. Thanks, McDaniel, for sharing your knowledge and helping us in the Blackboard community visualize e-Learning!
We invite you to share with BbTV suggestions for videos that should be featured here on EducateInnovate. No clip is too short; no video, too funny! Send your videos to us, or links to clips you like, at BbTV@blackboard.com.
