Michigan Blackboard Users Group Meeting – #BbWorld14

mibug-logoBlackboarders from across Michigan joined online and in person in Las Vegas to connect and share best practices.

Over 23 total attendees with several remote users from GRCC, Washtenaw, MCC, Northwood, LTU and in person Bb’ers from Ivy Tech, Ferris State, MVU, GVSU, Wayne State University, Muskegon Community College, WCC, GRCC, Schoolcraft, and Central Michigan.


  1. Introductions – See above for the colleges and universities attending.
  2. miBUG Housekeeping – Discussion around 2 conferences… the decision is to have 1 meeting in the Spring due to the investment of time.  We need an institution to host a conference for 2015.  Is there interest in a meeting schedule for Fall and Winter.  We could do an open office hour format, 1 time a month.
  3. Updates from BbWorld – BUGLUG meeting updates were brief at the conference.  Lots of discussion around exciting product innovation coming from Bb. My EDU will bring some new features and focus on students.  Lots of student focus in the keynote with over 100 students invited by Blackboard to attend the conference.  There seems to be an interest in developer conference and a missing this conference and focus. 
  4. Sharing Ideas Discussions about:
    1. Analytics
    2. End of Course Survey Tools
    3. Student Orientations
