The seminar itself was well-run. The presenters involved the audience by asking us if anyone used these tools already, and what we use them for. This allowed the instructors to share their insights with one another. I have attended several presentations by this Blackboard crew, and I find them to be engaging, professional, and efficient.
Thank you so much for all of your help and training. I feel so much better about using the new version of Blackboard now.
You were so good at making me feel comfortable rather than a complete idiot to have to re-learn such basic tools.
Thank you for all of your help. I have LOVED doing the presentations online. It has really benefited both instructional time and student comprehension…it has been tremendous. THANK YOU FOR ALL of YOUR HELP!
Thank you for an excellent training session today. It was very helpful.
You guys are always ‘yep, we can do it… thanks’
Thank you so much for the wonderful presentation! It was so helpful and useful – not only for the FLTAs but for all of us in attendance. You covered much material that we will all be able to use. I appreciate all the time and effort that went into the planning of the session and the creation of the Blackboard site – it will be very useful and convenient for everyone.
I’m really glad that I have someone to call in for tech instruction that is reliable, clear, straightforward, and even humor-infused.
Thank you so much for providing us with so much information and offering your help with Wiki and file transfer of Blackboard.
Thanks for the phone call. I am impressed with your level of commitment.
