For about a month now I have been using Moodle with my classes rather than Blackboard. Last week I gave a talk at a small conference we had on campus to publicize the Moodle Pilot program. You can find it here. It was fun, and there was some interest on the part of other faculty members, so I am hopeful that we will be able to continue using it next semester and that, eventually, it may become an official university option.
I have used Moodle for a number of years now, and I am so happy to be back using it. It has made my life so much simpler!
