Here are the slides from the blackboard conference session. New connections and spaces, developing a data exchange system to support innovations in blackboard.
This session showed the details of how data is kept up to date and exchanged from the student information system into blackboard. This allows us to make accessible the blackboard community sites 4 weeks prior to students arriving on their course. I discussed the impact of the blackboard programme sites and Jack Butterworth provided the details of the process.
There were many questions, and people were interested in the efforts these sites might have on retention. Many of those who came to the session were in developer roles. They also commented that many of the presentations at the conference lacked a technical system wide detail.
