BamaBUG is a Blackboard Users Group that aims to provide members with opportunities for networking and collaboration with other higher education Blackboard users in the State of Alabama. BamaBUG seeks to produce and distribute best practices for establishing minimum quality standards in e-learning and traditional instructional methods, providing faculty development opportunities, getting faculty buy-in regarding effective use of Blackboard, and using educational technologies that supplement Blackboard as well as learning from one another's experiences, both good and bad.
Who should join?
We invite system administrators, instructional designers, faculty, and e-learning administrators (i.e., CIOs, provosts, deans, directors) that are Blackboard Academic Suite™ clients in higher education institutions in the State of Alabama.
How can I join?
Join Blackboard Connections, the home for collaboration among Blackboard clients. Once you have established your membership to Connections (now part of CourseSites), look for User Groups under Collaboration on the left course menu. Find BamaBUG in the list of groups and join!
