eDocs integrates seamlessly with Blackboard

eDocs comes with a connector for Blackboard, which allows instructors to add links to eDocs files directly in their Blackboard course. Because students are already logged into Blackboard, they will not need to log in to eDocs separately to view the files.

eDocs also comes with a bridge for Blackboard. The bridge allows instructors to access eDocs directly from Blackboard, without having to login separately.

This is very powerful! Instructors can keep large files, such as narrated PowerPoint presentations, on the eDocs server, rather than on the Blackboard server - which doesn't slow down the performance of the Bb server. In addition, if multiple course sections use the same material, updating the file in eDocs updates ALL course sections that link to it.
