Blackboard provides an online space to organize learning materials, student grades, and communicate. The LMS can be used to supplement a traditional class, to support a blended course, or it can be used as the main delivery structure for a fully online course.

Blackboard Collaborate (formerly known as Elluminate) is a web conferencing system that allows a host (or instructor) to meet, present, and/or collaborate with its audience (or students) synchronously. Blackboard Collaborate also gives the host the ability to record a session and share the session at a later time asynchronously.

Zoom gives you the power to engage users (or students) in a web conference with a variety of tools such as instant polling, whiteboard, desktop sharing, audio and video conferencing, and chatting. In one platform, you can host online sessions for small or large groups. You also have the ability to record a session and share the session at a later time asynchronously. From anywhere, faculty can meet with students using their laptop, desktop, tablet, or smartphone. Zoom is compatible with iOS, Mac, Android, and PCs.
