Online Education for Students


What is Blackboard?

Blackboard is a web-based course-management system (often called CMS) that allows students and faculty to participate in classes delivered online. Blackboard hosts hybrid online courses and documents like syllabi, PDFs, digital library materials, audio and video clips can be stored and accessed on Blackboard to complement face-to-face teaching. Blackboard enables instructors to provide students with course materials, discussion boards, virtual chatting, online quizzes, and can be used as a document resource center.

Some courses can be conducted entirely through Blackboard, without any on-campus sessions. If you are assigned to a course you can use Blackboard to store and allow students to access documents or use it to facilitate a hybrid, online and asychronous, course. Hybrid/Online.
