"Helpful Way to Access Blackboard Files"

What do you like best?

Accessing files without having to be in Bb

What do you dislike?

Sync issues - drive not wanting to save new docs

Recommendations to others considering the product

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.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

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.
