Aside from storing files for classes, we have a departmental folder that we use to share documents. Blackboard Xythos allows us easy access without having to go through a web browser and logging into our CMS. It works off-site, too.

We use Blackboard for all of our courses at this community college, and the Blackboard Xythos (or Blackboard Drive) makes it very easy to access files on the server. If a faculty member builds their course properly, they can link from 5 different sections to one syllabus file in their xythos drive and then update it by opening the file directly from a drive on their computer which in turn keeps those 5 courses up to date in one move.
* We monitor all Blackboard Xythos reviews to prevent fraudulent reviews and keep review quality high. We do not post reviews by company employees or direct competitors. Validated reviews require the user to submit a screenshot of the product containing their user ID, in order to verify a user is an actual user of the product.
