Blackboard is a course management and collaboration portal that enables educators to manage course materials and communicate with students. Blackboard can function both as a complement to traditional courses and as a site for distance learning.

With Blackboard, you can take surveys, quizzes, and tests; send and receive course mail; post messages to threaded discussions and chat rooms; upload assignments using online drop boxes; and more. You can check your progress and grades at any time during a course. You can also create groups and teams for project or committee work.

Access Blackboard:


If you have an eligible smartphone, you can now use it to access My Grades, Lessons, Discussions, and more using the Blackboard™ mobile application.

Blackboard’s mobile application enables you to access much of your Blackboard course information and content from your mobile device. This is a way for the learning environment to expand beyond the computer and classroom. This application is an extension of Blackboard and enables access anywhere, anytime, on the go, and enriches the course and organization experience.
