The Blackboard User Community is an interconnected web of questions and answers, experience and expertise.
At the center of that web are the most knowledgeable, skilled users of Blackboard technology – Blackboard MVPs.
Bb MVPs aren't just knowledgeable. They're engaged, accessible, and collaborative, sharing their proficiency and feedback with the wider Blackboard community through social media, discussion forums, webinar presentations, and events.
Bb MVPs live and breathe Blackboard technology. If you have questions, they have answers.
Bb MVPs consistently raise their hands to assist fellow Blackboard users and foster a cooperative community of users.
Bb MVPs represent the voice of the User Community. They openly share feedback with Blackboard and make themselves available to help fellow clients in a timely manner.
Bb MVPs are team players. They work with their fellow Blackboard users to improve the application of Blackboard technologies for the benefit of all users and education overall.
The Blackboard MVPs will be sharing their expertise by moderating the Ask the Doctors Client Q&A forum, continuing to share their best practices through their personal blogs, Blackboard blogs, social media, tweet ups, office hours, and more. This first class of MVPs are excited to support the community in a more direct and accessible way.
