Blackboard IM is an Instant Messaging service that is different than regular instant messaging services in that it connects students, faculty, and staff to not only each other, but key campus resources (examples: Writing Center, HelpDesk, and Library). Classmates can converse with each other, and faculty could use this for virtual office hours without being logged into MUOnLine.
Log into MUOnLine and find the link to Blackboard IM on the left sidebar. When setting up your username, please use your name instead of your 901.
