In January I attended the Durham Blackboard Users’ Conference. This was the 18th running of the event by Durham University and the first I have attended. Each conference has a unique theme and this years was based on the classic Spaghetti western, The Good, the Bad and The Ugly. The two day conference featured a number of talks, demos and presentations highlighting what is good bad and ugly with Blackboard.
Before I cover some of the sessions, I have to say it was an exceptionally well run conference. The team at Durham have put a great deal of work into not only the event, but the social aspect following the conference.
