Use the Blackboard Collaboration Tool

UTSA’s Blackboard Collaboration Tool is a powerful online tool that allows students and faculty to collaboratively work on projects. This article provides tips and tricks for using the tool successfully.

Begin by creating an account, if you haven’t done so already. Once you have an account, click on the “My Account” button on the main Blackboard Collaboration toolbar. On the “My Account” page, you will need to provide your username and password. After logging in, you will be able to see all of your active collaborations and add new collaborations by clicking on the “Add New Collaboration” button. To start a collaboration, simply click on the “Start Collaborating” button next to the collaboration you would like to join.

To get started working in a collaboration, it is important to understand some of the basics of how the Blackboard Collaboration Tool works. Every active collaboration has two main parts: a discussion board and a document library. The discussion board is where users can post messages and share files related to that collaboration. The document library is where all of the project files are stored for that collaboration. Whenever someone posts a message or makes a change to a file in the discussion board or document library, that information is automatically replicated into both parts of the collaboration. This means that everyone participating in the collaboration can see all of these changes at once without having to wait for each other to update their views

BBM allows you to send messages as soon as they’re posted on the Blackboard site, so you never miss a beat.

· Connect to Blackboard remotely using Microsoft ScreenConnect software. This free tool enables you to access Blackboard content from any PC or Mac in your classroom network.* ScreenConnect is an excellent way to help students who are remote learners who still need feedback on their work.
