bFree - Blackboard Export Extractor

Here is a very interesting and useful tool if you are working with Blackboard version 6.3 and higher. This tool is freely available from the UNC website. Essentially, this tool will allow you or your students to view and extract any content for a Blackboard Archive or Export zip file. It also can be used to do the following:
  • If you need to extract a document from an old course that you have an archive file, you can use bFree an avoid having to mount the file back into a Blackboard course shell.
  • You can convert your course into a web site with the same structure, that can be shared outside of Blackboard either on a disk or website.
  • This would be a very useful tool if you needed to move your course from Blackboard to a different LMS.
