About the Group

Welcome! 

We are the User Group for Blackboard Mobile and Blackboard Collaborate ("MoCo"). We hold monthly events ("MoCo Lounges"), which provide the opportunity for users to interact with each other and feed back directly to Blackboard. This online site provides a dedicated forum for both technologies, so members can raise questions and share ideas with each other and with product developers at Blackboard; please visit this space regularly for updates and news.

Thanks for joining us!

Resources:

We've always had great community resources available in the MoCo User Group, and we want to keep that going on this new community site! We've now added back in the key areas of the old site's content but we'd also love to hear from you about new resources, too. Got an example of Mobile or Collaborate being used in an interesting way? Got a problem you'd like help with? Spotted a bug? Got a handy resource that others might find useful? Investigated an accessibility element of these tools? Please create a discussion thread or a blog post to share this with the community. Thanks in advance!  

To get started we suggest:
