New! CollegeAnywhere's tools are fully integrated into the Blackboard Learn system with the release of the updated CollegeAnywhere Blackboard Building Block in January 2013. All of the tools described here - integrated into Blackboard for institutions which are users of CA's Content and Video upload tools! Even better, the full CollegeAnywhere Web interface is available if you change your LMS - with all your files saved in the cloud and fully accessible anywhere on the Web! Contact us to learn more about CollegeAnywhere's Content and Video upload tools and Blackboard integration.
