Blackboard Basics

Blackboard is a learning management platform that allows you to post course materials, create an opportunity for students to engage with you and with each other, and demonstrate that they have achieved the set learning goals. Each course automatically gets a Blackboard course site when courses open for registration and students are automatically enrolled. Please review the following resource pages to get more familiar with Blackboard.
