Hi Mark,

This sounds like an exceptional use of Blackboard! Do many art teachers in your
district and/or area or state use Blackboard?


Quoting Mark Anderson <>:
> Yes, I've been using Blackboard for the past two years
> as a part of my regular class program, last year for
> 8th grade and this year for high school. I use it as
> (a) a single resource for informational items such as
> syllabus, contact, web links, assignment sheets, etc.;
> (b) an archive for my PowerPoint presentations, slide
> shows, and "where you can go to catch up on class
> discussion points when you've been absent;" (c) a
> limited amount of online discussion -- although I'm

> (d) for my art|MEDIA and graphic design classes, I've
