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!
Amy Eyre and Helga Gunnarsdottir.
