Here’s a link to an article about a facebook application which allows users to create Blackboard-like courses within facebook. I haven’t looked at it yet so I’m not sure about the features.
Once again, we need to ask whether facebook users want to share their social networking space with educational applications. Do poeple really want to have a learning management system available in facebook?
Social networkers can now check in on their Blackboard courses from their Facebook profiles. Is this a good thing? What are the advantages and disadvantages for students and teachers? This presentation will demonstrate how Blackboard interfaces with Facebook, and share the results of a survey given to students and faculty who installed the Blackboard Application into their Facebook profile.
