Your instructors are encouraged to establish a blackboard account to post their syllabus, course calendar, assignment descriptions, lecture notes, and discussion boards for each of your classes.
WHAT IS BLACKBOARD?
Blackboard is a web-based course management system designed to allow students and faculty to use online materials and activities to complement both face-to-face and online teaching. Instructors can provide students with course materials, class announcements, discussion boards, online quizzes, an academic resource center, online grades, and more.
Many of our distance education (internet) and face-to-face classes have a blackboard component to the learning process. To access the blackboard system, click here.
