Users of Blackboard Collaborate
Greetings to all. I live in Southwest Georgia (US) and am vice president of the local chapter of the American Society for Public Administration.
If I am awarded access to a Blackboard Connect account with 50 "seats" I will use it to host weekly online meetings intended to help elected and employed local government officials share their knowledge with one another. This is a rural area with many small city governments. Officials have challenging obligations and need additional abilities to share their knowledge and experiences with one another. If I have access to a Blackboard Connect account I will arrange for guest presenters and will record sessions to be made available to others "on demand." I will continue to encourage my colleages to use Blackboard Connect for organizational and educational purposes.
I look forward to meeting you all through this community made available to us by Blackboard and Steve.
