The new Blackboard Learn™ interface encourages students to interact as a community or group online and to have a more socially mobile learning environment. Auckland University of Technology (AUT) is using communication tools to encourage students to work together and to enhance the student's experience in a blended learning situation, as well as using these tools for assessment and formative evaluation of the student's work.

In this session, we shall look at AUT's transition to using Blackboard Learn's blogs, wikis, and journals from CampusPack (Learning Objects) plug-in tools, including the reasons why we decided to migrate away from CampusPack, the plan we adopted for the migration, plus the benefits and pitfalls of each system for any institution that is thinking of switching. We will also look at this university's experience of encouraging the use of wikis/blogs/journals particularly in large courses (1,000+ students).

  • The University for the Changing World Facts: AUT has been going since 1895 – in 2000 became university status. Fastest growing Uni in NZ Only University in NZ with Space Programmes Staff: 2,106 FTE Staff  Students: 27,000 students
  • Blackboard since end of 2002 ? We are on 9.1 SP10Full community site + Collaborate + Turnitin + Mobile + MediaSite + Mahara +9.1 SP10
  • In Jan 2012 moved to Campus Pack Server and Version 4. Much more complex set up.Sign language students all up load many videos – took ages for students to upload and for lecturers to openSet up groups but could not have wikis, blogs etc as part of the group tools 3 months to get one reply back from CP for a job logged.Frustrating for AUT staff and students using CP via BbAn example - If set date on Wiki that Wiki closed by and individual wikis – we had to change the date on every single wiki to allow students to still edit Wiki
  • Light Bulb moment + can use Bulk group manager to create all groups and turn on Wiki or Journal etc. Example: The script will auto generate, eg we have a course with 1000 students and 162 group wikis. Since no special permissions required – this was easy to arrange. This would not be possible in CP.3000 students using mobile to access bb regularlyPossible to have a mark a green exclamation mark show in GC everytime or 3rd time etc a students adds something to Wiki.
  • lose all previous work by students and lecturers – need to reset up new journals etc but history will never be restoredMajor issue in setting up wikis etc which need to continue to be used.Users disabled in user table cause wiki etc to be not accessible (now sorted)Other issues since – include comments,
  • Many communications to lecturers to advise will lose all material so need to tell us what is required. BY EMAIL – numerous times!Backed up all blogs wikis journals podcasts for 2012. AUT used CP for 7 years. So would need to back up anything else that was required for Lecturers research etc.Turned off CP tools in Bb 5 months before licence finished so gave lecturers time to be aware that we would need to back them up.EXAMPLES Podiatry paper that used xray in each wiki etc.– need to back up all CP wikis etc that would be required in the future.
  • Decide how far back to save data - Resolved: back up of all wikis, blogs, journals and podcasts for 2012 + Save to Bb Content system + employ temp to do this (8 weeks)Export all find way to set up wikis etc for students/lecturers to continue to use themSome courses had students using Wikis which continued from one paper to another particularly where they are using them to keep a record of their research of their experience in hospitals, clinics etc.Staff were using them for Research.Took Temp 8 weeks to do back upExport all wikis, blogs and journals, and then find a way to transfer them from one system to another if the lecturers were continuing to use wikis etc
