Blog instead of Blackboard

I am most excited about using blog instead of the Discussion Board on Blackboard, which I find tedious and time consuming. I was really amazed at how quickly I was able to set up an account and start blogging. I really despise all the clicking and waiting on Blackboard. Frankly, I use the discussion boards, but I do not read them as much as I would like because I do not have time to click, read, and respond to everyone. With blogging, I can view them all at once and reply to several postings at one time. Thanks for presenting this session!

I had a good time at TYCA. My only disappointment was that Morgan Freeman couldn't stay longer, but I'm willing to console myself with the fact that he was able to show up at all.

I'm excited that so many people expressed an interest in blogging. I've become something of a blog crusader, and I hope we can really get an active, viable discussion group going on this blog. Then we won't have to wait a whole year before we hear from people from other schools and other states. We can gossip and trade teaching ideas and laugh at each other's jokes and generally get some personal and professional enjoyment out of knowing each other any day of the week.

Because we've all just come back from TYCA, I think the thing to do is to start out by talking about TYCA. Which sessions did you attend? What did you get the most out of? What do you plan to use from what you learned at the conference?
