Like many people working with education and technology, at Blackboard we’re using more Web 2.0 tools to share information with members of the Blackboard user community.
Recently a colleague and I made a very short video invitation to attend our upcoming annual users conference in Boston, July 10–12; the video is called “BbWorld ’07…OF COURSE!”
We just grabbed my colleague’s small digital camera and walked around our offices here in D.C., asking several Blackboard team members why they’re attending BbWorld ’07. She then edited the clips together on her laptop. So quick, simple, easy. Why haven’t we been sending all of our event invitations, messages about software upgrades, etc. in short video clips?
And here again is Adrian Alleyne’s short video titled “Adventures in First Life” – his humorous spoof on Second Life, one of the virtual worlds which several education institutions are exploring to extend their in-classroom experiences. Check it out.
