Blackboard LMS

In the Winter semester of 2015, I made the commitment to fully embrace the colleges Learning Management System (LMS), we use Blackboard. Up until this point I used the LMS as a glorified file sharing tool to share course outlines, slide decks, code samples, and files used in class.

I have become a strong advocate for Blackbaord within my school and plan on growing the list of Blackbaord tools utilized.
