Starting today, Blackboard is offering a weekly 'Trend Report' to be posted every Friday offering a list "of the recent industry articles that the Blackboard team has been reading and found most interesting.". While I'm delighted to welcome another entry into the field, I think the first pass needs reworking. The selection of sources is limited (do people at Blackboard read only Inside Higher Ed, the Chronicle, NPR, Hechinger and EdSurge?) and the summary is nought but a word-for-word reproduction of the first paragraph of the selected article. Blackboard staff should beep in mind that when I survey my own readership what they appreciate is the wide range of sources consulted and - even more! - the personal commentary written for each article. You can't fake authentic. :)
