Blackbird: Accelerated Course Archives Using Condor with Blackboard

Friday, June 04 | 9:30AM–10:15AM | International D (6th floor)
Session Type: Professional Development
Clemson University implemented Condor architecture on the Blackboard LMS application servers in order to gain higher throughput when processing Blackboard course archives. Condor has typically been used for high-throughput research computing but not applied to nonresearch problems involving long processing times. This creative leap—applying a research technology to an administrative/academic problem—occurred at Clemson because we broke down operational silos, which enabled cross-disciplinary personnel to gain different perspectives.
