  2. Do you have the answer to these questions in a text or ppt format that you are willing to share? Thanks for your work on this topic.

  4. Hi All,

    This workshop continues to be a popular download. Thanks for all of your feedback. I’m watching it again for the first time in about six months and realizing that (as usual) things have changed. Thankfully, Blackboard has fixed a number of the issues with Internet Explorer including the problem seeing all of your students if you have a large class. Someday soon I’ll record an updated version of the workshop.

    Have a great day,

    David
