About Bb Drive

Blackboard Drive is a client desktop application for Windows and Mac OS X that allows desktop access to the Content Collection tab by mapping it as a shared network drive (a lettered drive on Windows and Shared Volume on Mac OS X). Blackboard Drive uses the WebDAV protocol for communication with Learn content management but has many advantages over the OS native WebDAV clients. Blackboard Drive provides better reliability, a more consistent experience, and improved user efficiency.
