Blackboard, our course/learning management system (CMS/LMS), is a web-based solution for online delivery of course-based instructional materials offering an easy-to-use interface and instructional management tools that require no HTML authoring skills. The Center for Instructional Technology offers Blackboard training for faculty and maintains online Blackboard support resources. Extensive Blackboard support resources are also available online from Blackboard directly.
Blackboard 9's performance—especially on the Grade Center—is dependent upon the processing power of the computer you use. For optimal performance, before you login to Blackboard, we suggest that you close any unnecessary programs, tabs, or browser windows. For even greater performance improvements, use a modern, up-to-date web browser and do not use Internet Explorer 7.
