Blackboard Connect allows officials to send
thousands of messages in minutes, requires no additional hardware, and can be
used from any computer with Internet access or telephone. This ensures that
administrators can send vital messages from wherever they are located—even if
they are evacuated. Additionally, officials receive detailed reports on
contacts that did not receive a message, enabling them to follow up through
alternative means as needed.
