Sometimes I get to have a little fun as we gather and share stories of how our clients are using Blackboard solutions to impact teaching and learning. And that was the story last week as we filmed our promotional video for Blackboard True Stories – our second annual K-12 video testimonial contest.
With the help of (and an extreme dose of patience from) our BlackboardTV team lead, Erik Gillespie, we staged a set in our Washington, D.C. office and filmed a video clip that we hope will encourage our K-12 clients to pick up a camera and share with us, and their peers, how they are using Blackboard solutions at their school.
We are calling all parents, students, teachers and administrators who use Blackboard software to make a short video telling us their story. The top five video producers will receive free admission to attend BbWorld ’08 this summer in Las Vegas, where we’ll screen the winning video in front of hundreds of attendees.
The topic of submissions is up to our clients, but here are some questions we asked them to consider as they created their video:
- How have you experienced success using Blackboard software for professional development?
- How has Blackboard’s online learning impacted the lives of your teachers, students and parents?
- Describe one of your greatest “a-ha” moments using Blackboard software. What made it so unique for you, your colleagues and/or your students?
