September 1, 2010

Good Afternoon Instructors,

It is hard to believe it is already September!

I have had a couple of requests from instructors to demonstrate how to set up and manage groups within Blackboard so this week's screencast walks you through the process of setting up, managing, and accessing groups within Blackboard. Our students will be working in groups in their careers so offering them the opportunity to work in groups in their education prepares them even further for life after graduation. I encourage you to consider implementing some type of group work into your courses if you haven't done so already. And if you have any questions on how to manage groups after reviewing this screencast, please let me know.

As a follow-up to last week's blog post on Animoto, I'd like to share a source with you where you can access photos that are copyright free. Thank you to Cathy Kennedy for bringing to my attention.

Have a great rest of the week and if there is a topic you'd like to see explored in a future blog post, please just let me know.
