"Blackboard" is BW's academic software that provides an online platform for you and your instructors to interact. You will have a separate Blackboard course site for each of your classes. It will have links to the course syllabus, grades, and more. Some instructors will use Blackboard to share course documents, post assignments, host discussions, and collect homework. You can access Blackboard by going to bb.bw.edu or via the "MyBW" portal at: my.bw.edu.
Many of BW's classrooms are now
equipped with Extron Sharelink! These
devices allow instructors and students
to wirelessly share content from their
mobile computers to the classroom screen
(using BW WiFi). No longer will you need
to go to the podium and log in to make a
presentation. You can share content
right from your seat - PowerPoint, Word
docs, photos, websites... anything
that's on your computer! It's quick and
easy to access using these instructions:
To help you located rooms that have the ShareLink device installed, look for a sticker that says "ShareLink Enabled" and an instruction card attached to the podium. There's one installed in the Cyber Cafe that you can use with friends and classmates!
