Elon University recently wrote to comment on our article about using Blackboard for Online Student Elections and his experience with online voting.
"… we considered using Blackboard for our student elections a few years ago. We ended up building our own online voting system because Blackboard couldn’t handle one type of election we have, which requires students to vote for up to 5 candidates from a pool of 10 candidates. Other than that limitation it would have been a great solution. And I’d love to hear how other schools are using Blackboard for voting and in other creative ways."
I’m happy to post your ideas and feedback – please send them in.
