  9. 9. Feedback from faculty <ul><li>I'm glad you're here Wiz. My comfort factor has just gone up! </li></ul><ul><li>  I could still be using Blackboard as I did ... using only an elementary knowledge and skill. However, the increased confidence and confidence, following the tutorials and wizard, have allowed me to provide a more sophisticated (and more user-friendly) shell. My thanks to all that provide us with that level of easy-to-use training. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>October 26, 2009
  10. 10. Feedback from faculty <ul><li>I had initially struggled through Blackboard, assuming that I could figure it out on my own. It didn't seem too difficult ... until I wanted to take advantage of what I witnessed others were doing with it. The tutorials and the wizard have provided me with the awareness and instruction of how to capitalize on the resources and abilities of Blackboard. In the end, I am more fully enjoying my on-line teaching and finding that students also enjoy the tools and capabilities of the system. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>October 26, 2009
