> As far as setting up an online class, the college I teach at uses
> "Blackboard" an online course management tool where students log in, and
> get course materials. Within Blackboard is an area students have passive
> Discussion Board, another area instructors can use a white-board and have
> multiple students signed in at the same time to share in a live
> discussion, a grade book, calendars, and other tools for students to use,
> assignments area, instructor information area, etc. You can go to the
> "Blackboard site" where I believe you can try it out and see how it works.
