Re: article about Blackboard
- Dear Tere,
Thank you for the article. It looks like Blackboard is really doing
well in the US.
I have not used BB after the ETA presentation mainly because I have
my Yahoo Groups which my students find easier to use. And since the
BB site is a demo site, I don't feel comfortable with the whole set-
up. Last week, Frank told me that they had upgraded Wimba for BB
recently and that I should check it out. Indeed, I did. I went to my
site and checked out the new Wimba tools. The graphics used are
different, but the tools are basically the same. But the biggest
disappointment of all was to find that all my students' voice files
and even the webheads' voice files for the ETA conf. were all gone!
I checked all the folders but they're nowhere to be found.
I wrote Frank but I have not received any response from him.
Anyways, many of my students' voice files are in CDs and diskettes;
so I still have something to work on.
So that's my unfortunate experience with BB- I guess, this is what I
get from a free demo site.
