Blackboardwalla

I’m not a big fan of proprietary course management software. I’ve been a student and librarian with Blackboard, and now a teacher and librarian with WebCT (though we’re switching to Blackboard this fall). None of these experiences has been overwhelmingly positive. Last year a colleague and I decided that Blackboard is Web 2.0 for instructors but remains miserably 1.0 for students.

In any case, now you can laugh at some Blackboard frustrations with Blackboardwalla, a mash-up of Blackboard and Bollywood from the blog metamedia. Hat tip to the Chronicle Wired Campus.
