I found the summer institute very helpful and have been promoting whenever possible.
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.
You guys are always ‘yep, we can do it… thanks’
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 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.
Thanks for the phone call. I am impressed with your level of commitment.
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.
Thank you so much for all of your help and training. I feel so much better about using the new version of Blackboard now.
