Bboogle is software that lets you embed Google Documents (including spreadsheets, presentations, etc) , Google Calendars and Google Sites in a Blackboard course site. Everyone with access to the course can get to linked Google content without logging in a second time. Students and instructors are automatically added as collaborators to the documents, even if they join after the link is made.
Bboogle is also an open source project that you can join. We are looking for skilled developers and educational institutions who want to contribute time to creating the best possible connection between Google Apps and Blackboard. Please see our list of Frequently Asked Questions at FrequentlyAskedQuestions.
Looking for the latest open source offering? If so, you should download directly from the Subversion repository at https://source.at.northwestern.edu/svn/os/bb-gint/trunk . As of March of 2013, the trunk is at release/version 3.2.4 (which happens to be also a version that has been certified by Blackboard).
The Files area of this website is the place to find the official open source releases. If you are looking for a particular version that is not included here, then you need to download it directly from the Subversion repository (e.g. versions from 2.1.0+ to 220.127.116.11Alpha do not have an accompanying distribution release, although in most cases they have a corresponding repository tag). Or, for community contributions, including the Blackboard Certified Bboogle releases, please visit Community Contributions . The Releases section of this Wiki describes the different types of releases available.
You can find more information about Bboogle in the Wiki area, and extensive documentation in the Docs area, including release notes and basic documents for every official open source release.
NOTE: given Google API deprecations of April 20th, 2015, existing versions of Bboogle will cease to function. An updated version - now in progress- will eventually be made public in this project site.
Bboogle is an open-source project of the Academic & Research Technologies unit of Northwestern University Information Technology.
