BIE (Blackboard Idea Exchange) Steering Committee Meeting
December 6, 2006, 8:54 pm
Filed under: Conferences

Our meeting will take place at Blackboard Headquarters on December 7th and 8th.  This will be an excellent opportunity to learn about various updates from the thought leaders at Blackboard Inc.  I’m looking forward to discovering new ideas around the product roadmap, talking about the next generation course management system, providing feedback around features and funtionality of a new gradebook, and discussing suggestions for enhancing the user interface itself.  I’m also very excited to participate in new group tools and social networking tools that will be part of the Blackboard Beyond Initiative.

 Most of all I’m looking forward to continue building the relationship with Blackboard to enhance Grand Rapids Community College’s eLearning initiatives.   This is a very unique opportunity to carry on a dialogue with key representatives from Blackboard Inc., allowing GRCC to help shape the future development of the next generation learning and course management system.
