Many universities today are interested in getting faculty to integrate technology into their curriculum. Faculty development is something that, as institutions, we all share in, yet often do not collaborate in. Watch an exciting, but brief, DVD that captures the movement from face-to-face training integrating a course management system (Blackboard) into the curriculum to videoconferenced collaboration for faculty development. Understand how this project grew into an inter-institutional collaborative effort that will continue to reach across the state of New Jersey and can be the model for many future undertakings by other higher education institutions. Details of how the project unfolded, what worked well and what didn't are discussed both in the paper and actually demonstrated in the DVD. The DVD recorded the entire three-day session, but was edited down to eight minutes and narrated by the Institute Leader in order to convey, through multimedia, an understanding of the entire process of collaborating in training faculty how to integrate Blackboard.
