GoToTraining Integration with Blackboard Tool

Issue Date: 06-24-2016

Important Note: GoToMeeting is no longer available in Blackboard. You may continue to use GoToMeeting via the web. 

OIIT is excited to announce that you can now schedule your GoToTraining sessions in Blackboard using a new integration tool! This does not impact the functionality of the GoToTraining application but rather improves the scheduling of your sessions and the accessing of your recordings.  Another new feature is the records tab. This allows you to view a log of who has attended your sessions.

To add the new tool to your Blackboard course, simply click on the + sign at the top left hand side of the course menu, click on Tool Link, name the tool and select GoToTraining as your tool type, check the box to make it available to users. Once the tool is added the below instructions will assist you in scheduling sessions in your courses.

Please make the appropriate changes in your courses to use this new tool and consider training options for using GoToTraining.
