Academic Software and Systems
"Blackboard" is BW's Learning Management System (LMS).
VoiceThread can be used to record narration on PowerPoint presentations. Sometimes, your instructor will have a VoiceThread that each student will add audio comments to. Find VoiceThread instructions HERE.
Blackboard Collaborate Ultra is a synchronous video platform for online courses or meetings. It is built into every course and organization at BW.
As part of the Office 365 Suite, you have access to Microsoft Teams collaboration software. It includes document sharing, chat, audio/video meetings, and more.
