Faculty Perspectives of the Blackboard Course Delivery System

Mid-South Educational Research Association Annual Meeting,


This study was a qualitative examination of faculty perceptions about the Blackboard 5 learning platform. The study took place within the School of Education at the University of Alabama at Birmingham during the fall of 2001. The study involved content analysis of cases developed from recorded interviews of conversations with faculty members concerning their experiences with the Blackboard course delivery system. Interviews were conducted with five participants, four who were Blackboard users and one who chose not to use Blackboard in his class. Ten categories emerged from content analysis. Several of these categories were similar and revolved around the benefits of increased communication/collaboration/community through online instruction. (Author/SLD)
