We are considering switching on the Blackboard Sync tool to enable students to receive announcements via their Facebook account. However, there is some concern as to how this tool operates - in particular whether the flow of information is strictly 1-way (Bb to Facebook) or 2-way, posing implications for university IT infrastructure.
Does anyone have any experience of using Blackboard Sync? It appears to be a flexible way to allow students to manage communication from tutors and Faculty but I don't want to inadvertently let a genie out of a bottle.
