Buckle Up: Here Comes Blackboard 9!

So now that you are completely comfortable with Blackboard 8 (ahem), we just got the announcement of the official release of Blackboard 9. We do not yet know when it will be rolled out for the VCCS, but we do know that it is significantly different from past versions of Blackboard. There are already some basic pieces of information you can look at now if you're interested in looking ahead at what Blackboard 9 will be like. Visit this VCCS site to get some basic information and links to introductory videos and the like. I'd be interested in hearing what you think!

AHHH! are they taking feedback on Bb8 so as to correct/improve on current faults? Where do we go to share our suggestions/wish lists?
(I've run into some issues with the new Grade Center and issues remain with the Discussion Board from back with Bb 7)
