Blackboard rolled into the Big D Monday for the start of the Educause 2006 conference. One of my favorite aspects of Educause is seeing so many of our clients, especially the folks I’ve gotten to know over the past 7 years. It is especially nice when after months or even years of emailing with someone I finally get to meet them in person. With 7000+ attendees and more than 240 exhibitors, there are lots of clients and partners to see.
This year visitors to the Blackboard booth might notice a few new things. Our booth has a new look. We’ve updated our booth and given it a fresh coat of paint. You might also spot the fact that the Bb-ers are wearing bright shades of orange and blue in our booth – a nice change from the white and black shirts from years past. For those folks looking to sit down and chat with us we’ve brought some comfy seats and created lounges in the booth to make it easier to sit and stay awhile.
In the booth we’re focusing on the successes of our clients – how they’re changing the teaching and learning experience using Blackboard. We’ve asked folks to stop by the booth and tell us about their experiences and the outcomes they’ve achieved. Everyone who stops by and tells us their story is eligible to win a video iPod.
If you’re at Educause please stop on by the booth and say Hi!
