The Bboogle Building Block provides an easy way to integrate licensed Google Apps with Blackboard Learn. Schools that have licensed Google Apps for Education or Business can use Bboogle to initiate a single sign-on request to Google Apps so that users can link to any Google App tool from inside their Blackboard Learn courses. Instructors can create content item links to Google calendars, sites, and documents to provide direct access to specific items in the Google Apps system. Administrators can configure these links to provide edit permissions to students in a course for dynamic, collaborative content authoring in the Google Apps system.
Bboogle is also an open source Oscelot project hat you can join. We are looking for skilled developers and educational institutions who want to contribute time to creating the best possible connection between Google Apps and Blackboard.
