Blackboard Learn

Purpose

Blackboard is a web-based learning management system (LMS) designed to support fully online courses or provide a space for face-to-face course supplementation. Blackboard provides many types of tools and features for enriching the learning experience. Blackboard provides a space (course shell) for each course taught each semester. Student enrollments and faculty assignments are handled automatically by the system. A fully functional course shell provides tools for displaying content, interacting with students, and assessing students’ work. The system also supports various media types for creating engaging content. 

Use the procedures below to prepare your Blackboard course(s) for the new semester; deliver course instructions and manage course activities online; and end of term functions such as reporting grades or archiving your course.
