MeetingOne Aims To Help Incorporate Meetings into Blackboard Courses

MeetingOne has introduced a new version of a product that will let instructors and teaching assistants integrate meetings into existing Blackboard Learn courses.

MeetingOne's Adobe Connect integration for Blackboard will allow instructors and course creators to easily add Web meetings to course offerings that are part of Blackboard’s learning environment and course management system with a single sign-on.

This latest Blackboard Building Block will enable educational institutions and government agencies to offer the Web meeting experience with Adobe Connect server environments from within Blackboard Learn 9.1 environments.

Among the product's new features, it will allow instructors and course creators to:

  • Create an Adobe Connect room for an existing or future Blackboard course;
  • Choose a preferred type of audio, be it VoIP or telephone and VoIP;
  • Create a module within the Blackboard dashboard page to help users track both today's and future meetings; and
  • Allow instructors and users to review meeting information, reports and recordings.

With the new Building Block, students will be able to quickly see and access upcoming meetings from Blackboard and review previous meetings that have been recorded.

The cost of the new Building Block is $5,000 for a 1-year license, which includes ongoing support. The license subscription can be renewed annually

Installation and set-up support is $2,000 and enhancement updates will be available. All that is required of the user to perform the installation is available in a 4- to 5-page manual.
