Advice to Baruch College

My advice on how to integrate new media to improve Baruch College would be to try to make Blackboard more customizable by its users. Students should be able to edit contents on the Blackboard homepage just like a wiki. Blackboard should be open to everybody to see not just individual classes. Also Baruch College should have a student blog implemented on Blackboard allowing students to communicate with each other. Another advice I have for Baruch College is for every professor to integrate some sort of new media into their classroom. For example instead handing in hard copies of the assignments maybe they could use a class wiki to submit their assignments and allow others to read and correct any mistakes. I also recommend that every student in Baruch should have a twitter account so that professor could update them on any recent changes with the class schedule.


  1. They definitely need to use New Media to make submitting assignments much more convenient and reduces printing which kills two birds with one stone.

  2. Customization is very important so that individuals have a sense that Blackboard is a part of them and not only school.
