It's the question weighing on everyone's mind: How do I maximize my investment in an LMS?  At our University (like most), Blackboard is traditionally used to deliver course content in a secure manner to learners. But what other ways can you take advantage of the platform's built-in security features? During this session, we'll share how we leveraged the security tools within Blackboard (e.g., access control for documents) to create what we believe is a cutting-edge Rank and Tenure process. We'll share best practices and lessons learned along the way as we sought to convert a highly cumbersome physical process (printed papers stored in binders) to  a highly secure electronic system. We'll ensure that this session leaves time for Q&A and idea exchanges as well.
