|Abstract:||This paper describes how the University of Lincoln adapted the Blackboard virtual learning environment by modifying the snapshot extracts to create Blackboard sites that met the needs of teaching departments, rather than attempting to impose a single model on the University. Lumping refers to the process of creating a site out of multiple modules thus facilitating delivery of content to students across multiple awards. Splitting in contrast refers to the creation of special interest groups within modules based on data from the University's MIS systems.|
