Moodlerooms, from Blackboard, is now integrated to Office 365, so that students\staff can use Office 365 identity for a smooth single sign on experience, sync info to their Outlook calendars, store files on OneDrive for Business, and submit assignments and feedback through OneNote.
Last week at EDUCAUSE, Blackboard announced the integration of the Microsoft Office 365 plugins with Moodlerooms.
|General consumers today have high expectations on the web. They want simplicity, elegance, and engagement. And learners are no different – they expect their learning experience to be delightful, with tools that they are used to and that help them achieve their goals.
And while there has been integration of the Office 365 plugins on other Moodle platforms, Blackboard’s adoption will be the largest to date. The Office 365 plugins for Moodle include authentication with Azure Active Directory, calendaring with Exchange Online, file-storage with One Drive for Business, assignment submission and feedback with OneNote, and interactive course content with Office Video, Mix and Sway. Office 365 Groups, Office Graph, Yammer and Skype for Business integrations are also on the roadmap and will be available in future releases.
