Blackboard is a course management system which facilitates the creation and use of online course materials and functions. Using Blackboard, faculty can easily and quickly post syllabi, readings, web links, images, videos, etc. The benefit of Blackboard for students is that it provides anytime, anywhere access to learning materials. Blackboard allows instructors and students to connect in both a fully online course environment and in the traditional classroom, where Blackboard takes on the role of a digital repository.
During the 4 weeks preceding the start of a new semester, instructors fill out an online course shell request form. This helps to facilitate handling the increased volume of requests. During this time, we will post the link to that form and we ask instructors to use it, so we can serve you faster. Faculty will be notified by email when the course request link is available.
