The ConnectYard Building Block seamlessly integrates within Blackboard Learn as a two-way communications tool that makes it easy for faculty to engage, connect and alert students; one to one or one to many. Keeping all personal information totally private, students can select communications channels like Facebook, Twitter, text message and more; all based on how each user personally prefers to send and receive messages.
During the demo, you will learn how to:
• Use enhanced Blackboard Announcements & Discussions to better communicate with students via popular social media and mobile devices!
• Use the ConnectYard Building Block at the course and Institution level to support mass communications and notifications.
• Allow students to securely opt-in to their favorite communication channels, while eliminating privacy concerns and increasing engagement!
