Service Description

Blackboard is a robust, learning management system (LMS) used to facilitate teaching and learning for both face-to-face and online instruction. Engagement tools in Blackboard allow for rich discussions, critical thinking, collaboration, and reflection; the possibilities are endless. Outside of instruction, faculty, staff, and students can utilize Blackboard to collaborate with peers and partners of the university.


Blackboard can be used for asynchronous courses or for developing supplementary materials for courses taught over ITV, compressed video or traditional classroom instruction.



Users of Blackboard must have Internet access. Other hardware such as microphones or web cameras may be required depending on the course and will be identified by the instructor.  Browser requirements are located here.
