Interfacing with Blackboard
 In the Spring of 2006, all courses get a “shell”. Have your students upload files to the digital drop box – then archive course at the end of semester (you don’t have to teach online courses to have a Blackboard course shell).  You can retrieve your class data via the web at any location in the world with Internet access.  Messages (not email) can be used within Bb and archived for future retrieval. This can save valuable web-mail space.
