This year we bloggers at EducateInnovate will be working hard to improve the amount and type of information shared here.
We’ll be increasing the frequency of our posts; bringing in new voices from across the company to post regularly; inviting industry leaders and members of the global Blackboard community of users to participate directly in our blog by posting and commenting on posted entries and ed. tech. industry events; and adding new features to the site, such as multi-media functionality and a blogroll of the folks we’re reading.
The first step we’re taking is to help you more easily find the posts of greatest interest to you. To complement the categories listed in the right column of our site, which we’ve been using as tags, each week we’ll have teams of bloggers dedicated to posting—a different team for every day of the work week (Monday—Friday):
- Monday — Members of the International Blackboard community
- Tuesday — Campus card solutions professionals
- Wednesday — Our Client Success initiative leaders (including Craig Chanoff and Jan Day)
- Thursday — The Blackboard Beyond team
- Friday — The K-12 e-Learning community
Gordon Freedman will continue to post while traveling to meet with e-Learning leaders around the world; and Kerry Jo Richards—a familiar face to many people throughout the global Blackboard community of users—will be posting this year about, and answering your questions on, all things BbWorld (our annual series of users conferences held around the globe).
Please let me know which of the posts you read here are of greatest interest or use to you, and any suggestions you may have for us in 2008. Tell me what worked for you in 2007, and we’ll do more of it in ’08. Also, if you’d like to contribute to EducateInnovate, let me know. I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
