Making Your Blackboard Course “Pop”
Are you or your students tired of the same old, boring online look of black letters on a white background? If so, this workshop is for you. In this interactive, hands on workshop, you will learn how to add images, banners, sound, and videos to the announcements, content, and discussions in your Blackboard courses. Liven up your class to help keep your students motivated. In this workshop, resources will be shared that will help you with adding and manipulating images, sound, and video.

Eventoons: Experimental creative art using educational eventoons, cartoons and avatars
Cartoons and Second Life (SL) avatars have been used in management and information systems courses to bring educational current events to ground and virtual classroom. Eventoons are an experimental creative way to use art to shape current events in a drawing and/or virtual world to enhance their impact in our students. Drawing cartoons for a class is done on a whiteboard and/or posted on a website (www.eventoons.org), blog or SL virtual world. Creations are experimental because they are tested for usefulness to enhance the learning experience. (ID #143/Track 1)

Microblogging and social media groups to enhance classroom discussions topics
Microblogging and social media networks are two of the current web technologies that bring classroom activities outside the traditional ground and virtual platforms. Microblogging using Twitter is a creative way of posting comments and links that can be replicated in social groups, Blackboard announcements or inside a discussion board. Students are able to read and reply to tweets as part of a class or comment in a social group. Professors can select good responses and tweet them as a microblog in both Twitter and social media groups to expand discussions outside the classroom. (ID #139/Track 4)

Capstone course development for the BAS in Supervision and Management
The Capstone in Supervision and Management is a course that focuses on the integration of knowledge, skills and abilities learned in the BAS in Supervision and Management program through a capstone project. Integrating management knowledge was accomplished by including the core competencies and program outcomes (professionalism, problem solving, literacy skills, management perspective, information technology and teamwork), business advisory board current industry needs, students’ current workplace experience, and faculty academic and practitioner experience. The result was a matrix of course components (team project simulation, individual project, OPQ, professional development, current topics, and mentoring) that combine and integrate the above-mentioned areas.

The Web is an additional medium used by major TV cable news networks to expand and complement the dissemination of international, national, local, or other news that help users improve their knowledge and make informed professional and personal decisions. News websites provides an excellent way to present news to users who are willing to accept this technology and perceive that it is useful and easy to use. News websites allow professors to bring current events to the classroom in real time.
Mayor TV cable networks, TV broadcast networks, local stations, newspapers, news agencies, radio and web-only news provides have been developing news websites.
News websites bring extensive detail and coverage of the news, allowing users to go beyond regular television programming.
Web design, navigation scheme, and news content organization may affect the capability of these news websites to reach major users due to lack of usefulness or difficulty in navigating the sites to find the desired news. Usefulness and ease of use are two of the major problems encountered by web developers when creating and maintaining informational websites.
The News Web Sites
The Bottom Line
- Content, content organization, and navigation scheme could have impact on users.
- Perceived usefulness is the factor that predicts user’s acceptance and intended usage.
