METBUG is Blackboard's first Military Education Training Users Group. Launched at the Army dL conference in Newport News, VA in March 2009, METBUG aims to bring DoD Blackboard users together to find out what their peers are doing, learn from others' experiences, as well as discuss relevant issues such as content development, student management and more.

Why does METBUG exist?
At our initial meeting at the Army dL conference, this group of 40 peers or so pulled together why they thought this group would be useful. Here are the challenges DoD Bb users face:

•How to Use Blackboard (effectively)
•How to find reusable Courseware
•Communicating with other DoD users to discover best pratices
•Finding Resources in one Central Hub
•Testing Software
•Using available tools to reach the full capability of Blackboard within DoD
•Navigating through policy & procedure
•Using Building Blocks – how to install? When to do it? What types of courses?
•Justifying my dL system (ROI)
