You know it is somewhat disheartening when instructors don't want to update their education. I truly believe in the saying... When you are through learning, you are through.

And as an instructor (of higher education)it is hard to get students to learn the material, but it should not be hard to get the instructor to learn something new.

Well this week I had the opportunity to teach a 1 unit class for instructors; I taught them a great program called Blackboard. This is a portal type, internet accessible web-site where instructors can post assignments, notes, Powerpoint slides, exam... A whole bunch of things that should assist the student to be more successful.

I have a varied group of male and female, young and old, from various departments and they ALL seem to be embracing the experience. I am proud of my class, they are doing a great job and try and do everything I ask of them.

YEAH BB class, they push me to learn more and more.
