Blackboard Drive

Blackboard Drive is a client desktop application for Blackboard faculty, staff, educational designers, and course builders. It runs on Windows and Mac OS X. It allows desktop access to the Content Collection (Managed Hosting only) by mapping it as a shared network drive (a lettered drive).

Blackboard Drive uses the WebDAV protocol for communication with content management, but it has many advantages over the OS native WebDAV clients such as Microsoft Web Folders and the Mac OS X WebDAV client. Blackboard Drive provides better reliability, a more consistent experience, and improved user efficiency.
