Moodle is the Mount's Learning Management System (LMS) and allows educators to create their unique course website which utilizes dynamic features such as messaging, forums, wikis and glossaries.
  Moodle course sites can be used to administer quizzes and tests, as a grading system, create assignments and facilitate online discussions. 

Blackboard Collaborate

Within Moodle, faculty can access and utilize Blackboard Collaborate.  This is an online, synchronous (real time) interactive virtual classroom with voice-over-internet capability that facilitates engaged teaching and learning amongst faculty, students and the course content.

Collaborate facilitates learning via the web, video, and audio functionality and its tools include a shared whiteboard, virtual breakout rooms, emoticons, web tours and more.

Courses that use Collaborate have a scheduled real-time interaction which varies among courses and students connect to Collaborate directly from within the accompanying Moodle course site.
