Since its launch in 2000, the Blackboard Exemplary Course Program aims to help faculty use e-Learning technology more effectively by identifying and disseminating best practices for designing engaging online courses. Using a rubric, instructors and course designers are able to evaluate how well their own course conforms to best practices for Course Design, Interaction & Collaboration, Assessment and Learner Support.
Please consider participating in the 2011 Exemplary Course Program by submitting a course of your own or volunteering to be a reviewer or both! The deadline for nominating your course for review is January 18, 2011. Feel free to forward this message on to faculty or instructional designers you think would benefit from participating in this program.

Due to length, the video is broken down into two parts. Below is the first part detailing how master source questions work and the potential ramifications of making changes to these questions.
