Hello and Happy New Year!

I’ve sure most of you have heard already, but in case you haven’t, yesterday we opened the Call for Presentations for our first annual Blackboard Collaborate Connections Summit 2011!  The submission deadline is March 11, 2011.

This will be a terrific way to put your institution in the spotlight by sharing your experience, expertise, and examples at the 2011 Blackboard Collaborate Connections Summit, our first-ever combined Wimba and Elluminate user conference. Customers representing all academic disciplines and departments are welcome to submit proposals for concurrent session presentations. 

Some potential presentation topics could include:
    * Comprehensive use of Blackboard Collaborate for instruction, help, and meetings
    * Adoption, implementation, and faculty training
    * Newest uses of Elluminate Live!® V10, Wimba Classroom™ V6.1, Wimba Pronto™, and Wimba Voice™
    *  Lecture capture via MP4, MP3, high-resolution archives, and more
    * Non-instructional uses of Blackboard Collaborate
    * Best practices and/or tips and tricks
    * Lessons learned
    * Effective instructional and/or curriculum design

Don’t wait. Proposals are due by March 11 so submit your proposal NOW at http://www.connections-summit.blackboard.com/2011/content.asp?id=1898

Online registration opens soon.

*And I do have to add that the program committee probably won’t be able to accept every presentation proposals, but I hope you all throw your hats into the ring!
