What is Content Area?

Bb categorizes its features into Content Area and Tools. The content area always has the same user interface as shown below, no matter how it is called. For example, Schedule & Syllabus, Course Materials, Assignments. On the other hand, each tool has its unique user interface. For example, Announcements, Discussion Board, Blog, My Grade. They all have different user interface.
