This section is for faculty, students and staff seeking information regarding Blackboard IM (BbIM).
Blackboard IM is an academically-focused instant collaboration solution designed to promote learning through group work and academic and administrative help. One of the main differences between Blackboard IM and other collaboration solutions is that Blackboard IM synchronizes with HuskyCT enrollment records. This means that students and teachers are automatically connected with other Blackboard IM users enrolled in the same HuskyCT courses. Blackboard IM also includes advanced features such as video chat, screen sharing, and a robust whiteboard, which allow everyone at UConn to collaborate and communicate quickly and easily.
