If you open the Global Navigation menu in Blackboard, you will see that the bottom icon on the menu links to a tool called Spaces.
These are very simple social spaces that anyone can set up and invite people to. Members of a Space can create their own posts and comment on posts written by others.
You might find Spaces useful if you want to quickly set up a study group and invite people to it. You can even invite people from other universities and institutions that use the Blackboard Spaces tool.
We’ve created a short guide to using the Spaces tool, and members of staff can contact their Learning Technologist for guidance, or if you have any comments.
