Description

2 years ago
>> Vendor name
Blackboard, Inc.

>> Point of contact
Carl Marrelli

>> Site URLs
*.bbcollab.com

>> Does the application provide users with notice and control?
Yes.  Blackboard Collaborate prompts the user to ask if they want to share the whole desktop or an individual application.  This control is accessible to keyboard and screen readers.  Screen sharing only shares content based on this selection and is limited to the intended participants by restricting the stream to the active webrtc call.  The feature is under the direct control of the end user at all times.

This feature is documented in our online Help here: https://en-us.help.blackboard.com/Collaborate/Ultra/Moderator/030_Share_Content#section_1

*.bbcollab.com is requested as our application is hosted in multiple regions.



>> Have you seen and agree with the Developer Screen Sharing Submission policy?
Yes

>> Does the usage comply with the Developer Screen Sharing Submission Policy guidelines?
Yes

Thank you all very much.  I have a quick question to help inform my team and our customers.  Which version of Firefox introduced the whitelist?  Will Fx49 and Fx50 users not be able to use the extension?  Are our customers limited to Fx51+ ?

We can only request the white list change to get included up to Fx51. So users with Fx <= 50 will not have the Blackboard domains in their white list. If you want to support users with Fx <= 50 the only option I see is that Blackboard would to write a Firefox Add-on, which then adds the Blackboard domains to the white list. The Add-on approach would work for any version of Fx since it supports screen sharing.
