Do you know about Ask Dr. C?
Many of the client moderators (a.k.a. “the doctors”) who participate in Ask Dr. C describe it as a “community of clients helping clients.” It’s such a tremendously helpful resource that I try to tell everyone I can about it, because it just shouldn’t be a secret.
The next time you have a question about using any Blackboard solution—the Blackboard Learning System (including CE and Vista), the Blackboard Content System, the Blackboard Community System, the Blackboard Transaction System, the Blackboard Portfolio—or about e-Learning in general, I’d like to invite you to give Ask Dr. C a try.
So what is it?
Ask Dr. C is a question-and-answer service moderated by a friendly, knowledgeable group of trainers, faculty, instructional designers, sys admins, project managers, support specialists and developers.
It was started by WebCT in early 2000—it was originally named “Dr. CT” but the “T” got in everyone’s way and was quickly dropped—and was a big hit with students, faculty, designers and sys admins from the start. It was expanded to include questions about Blackboard software in September 2006.
The doctors aren’t the only ones who answer questions, either; anyone who’s willing and able to give an answer is welcome to do so. And you’ll also see that many questions get several answers, since there are often multiple ways to do something.
So next time you have a question, or feel like helping a fellow client with an answer, visit Ask Dr. C.
