Yesterday I showed you how you could embed Google Wave into Blackboard. At the time I tweeted this as “Google Wave embedded into Blackboard WebCT. A world 1st? http://twitgoo.com/4p068″ (the tweet).

Turns out I might have not been the first to do this as George Kroner showcased a Blackboard Wave integration at EDUCAUSE09. His example is streaks ahead of mine as he is synchronising discussions between a Google wave and Blackboard (click on the screenshot below for a side by side comparison).

If you are luck enough to have a Wave account you can see the wave here. The mirror of the conversation in Blackboard is here.

The VLE lives!
