Monday nights for me are Blackboard nights. I spend about 4 hours reading student work, working up assignments, sending email, and posting discussion board forums, announcements, et cetera.
I spend various other hours during the week responding to work and IMing with students, but Monday night, that’s Blackboard night.
Until I spend 15 minutes writing a discussion board prompt that gets promptly (sorry) eaten by the server when I try to post it. GRRR. Then Monday night becomes “blog about Blackboard disappointment” night.
Maybe I should change my night–maybe EVERYBODY’s Blackboard night is Monday, and that’s why the server is flaking out.
Well, it just means I’ll get to go to bed early tonight. Goodnight!
