We are excited to share the news that registration for BbWorld 2012 is now open! As you recharge over this winter break, why not get a jump start on your summer plans and consider joining us in New Orleans for our annual user conference. If you joined us last year in Las Vegas, it’s hard to forget the incredible opening keynote with Steven Johnson and the closing keynote from Sir Ken Robinson. Through the course of two and a half days, we kept you busy with dozens of sessions, networking opportunities and executive discussions, details on Blackboard’s technology roadmap, special receptions with your peers, Blackboard executives and staff, and a corporate keynote from founder and CEO Michael Chasen. We left you excited (and exhausted) and ready to head into the school year with best practices and new ways to deliver a more impactful learning experience at your institution. Don’t you want to join us again? This year we’ll be in New Orleans at the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. BbWorld 2012 is July 10-12 Blackboard Developers Conference is July 9-10. Attendees often tell us that some of the most rewarding moments of the conference come from client-led sessions, so now is the time to submit your presentation! Some of the perks of presenting during a session include sharing best practices with your peers, the opportunity to influence and enhance teaching and learning at other institutions, AND you’ll receive a discounted registration fee. The call for presentations is now open through the end of January.
