Blackboard is a course management system used to create and administer online instruction for its distance and on-campus courses. It enables faculty to disseminate course content and provide learning experiences over the Web anytime, anywhere, without HTML experience. Blackboard's online communication options (email, real-time chat area, asynchronous discussion boards, digital file exchange) enhance interaction among students and instructors. Faculty can administer online quizzes, surveys, and test banks to help automate the assessment and evaluation of student progress. For more information, see How to use Blackboard for Course Management(Available On-Campus Only).
