At the BlackboardTV Channel on YouTube, there is a new playlist called "Blackboard User Groups" in which we’ve begun to archive videos created by members of the dozens of independently run Blackboard user groups located around the world.
Members share ideas and best practices, get questions answered by peers and collaborate on e-Learning projects. Groups typically meet on a semi-regular basis in person and online through Blackboard Connections, an online hub for the global Blackboard user community. Many user groups also host regular regional conferences. And now there’s an archive for videos on YouTube!
This video is by Terry Patterson, the director of distance learning for South Arkansas Community College in El Dorado and the leader of ArBUG — Arkansas’ Blackboard User Group. (Check out the SouthArk Blackboard Blog for students.) In his video, Terry invites all Blackboard users in Arkansas to contact him to learn more about ArBUG:
Please let me know if you have a video about your Blackboard user group, and I’ll add it to the playlist for members of your group and others to see.
