Notes from the UK Blackboard Users Conference. The first post outlines the 'Make Do or Spend' theme looking at how colleges and universities are responding to funding pressures, and in particular, an overview of Alison Littlejohn's talk 'The learning ecology: why the promise of an economy of scale has not been achieved.' Notes Littlejohn, "To move forward we need to do some 'unlearning'." The second post outlines Director of Product Management with Blackboard LearnGreg Ritter's perspective, and in particular, "Blackboard Analytics [which] extract student data, from both Blackboard and Institution student-records systems, for use in reporting to different stakeholders."
