I want to know if there is a way to implement the University's mail in Blackboard, so that for example a student can log in to Blackboard and read (and send) e-mail.
We've kicked this can around a couple times at Temple, and I've informally brainstormed about it at a couple BbWorlds. My sort of dream was to write something that overrode the course send email tool so that instead of using the built-in form it would sso the user to webmail and create a new email with a recipient list based on what the user had selected. We use two separate systems, so the idea got too complicated to seem feasible, so we dropped it.
I remember finding this for gmail some time ago, (no idea how it works - @smachaje is who made it, I 'm pretty sure): Gmail SAML single signon
Thanks Peter Hanley
