Back over to the UK digitally in this episode. We talk with Chris Boon from City College Norwich, pronounced n -O-r-i-dge (rhymes with porridge). We learn he has an interesting history with online education and training and more about the definition of a City College in the UK. He also shares the various ways he helps the Blackboard Community and his recent membership into the Blackboard MVP program. We will also learn about his personal life and the possibilities of a Blackboard Community Band? If that doesn't make you want to listen, I'm not sure what will. Click the link below.
