I am the Technology Integration Coordinator for the Medina CIty Schools in suburban Cleveland, Ohio. This year we implemented Blackboard LMS in our high school and teachers are learning how to integrate this tool into their traditional classroom. Unfortunately, we have had to lay off several teachers over the past two years for financial reasons and this means that some student class offerings have been eliminated. I would like to see us utilize Blackboard to offer hybrid and eventually online classes to our students so that we can increase the number of options available to students. Right now we are losing students to other educational providers who do offer hybrid and online classes to meet our student's needs. If we can develop our own classes, we will be able to retain our students and potentially offer our classes to students outside of our district. We have some awesome teachers who are working this year to develop hybrid offerings for next year and we look forward to collaborating with our P2PU colleagues to make this a reality for our students.
