Learning Objects' Blackboard Wiki and Blog Tool Update

OIT will be installing the newest version of the Learning Objects wiki and blog tools in Blackboard. The new version includes several new upgrades:

- Improved site navigation for easier movement between user pages
- Site search function in the wikis
- Filters for searching blog entries
- A calendar feature in the blogs for seeing most recent posts

OIT has developed some training videos that highlight the new design and the new features. The video for wikis can be seen here and the blog for the blogs can be seen here. Additional help can be found by clicking on the "?" that can be found once you open the application.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact Bob Armstrong at ext. 5-3885 or or send an email to
