miBUG was established by Donna Wicks and Jon Kowalski of Kettering University. A lot has happened in our brief history, including annual conferences, special interest group meetings, collaborative sessions and seemingly countless updates to Blackboard. Sharing ideas and information has proven valuable to miBUG members and created an organization of which we are all proud.
Our membership, which includes K12 school districts, community colleges and universities, continues to benefit from one another’s experiences and shared resources. Any Michigan institution utilizing Blackboard products is welcome to become part of miBUG. If you are a user (faculty, administrator, CIO, director, student, etc.) of any of the Blackboard products, please join us! You can become involved in any (or all) of all of the following three ways:
1. If you would like to officially join the Michigan Blackboard Users Group, please add your information to our Active User Roster at http://bit.ly/joinmibug.
2. If you are interested in opting in to the miBUG listserv, hosted by Central Michigan University, you can sign up at http://bit.ly/mibuglist .
3. Finally, the miBUG community has joined CourseSites! In an attempt to organize the group and use the latest Blackboard Learn environment, we have a community that is open to any miBUG member. You may self-enroll in the community by going to http://bit.ly/mibugcs - if you need the self-enrollment code, please contact the miBUG leader, Meegan Willi, firstname.lastname@example.org .
