The Blackboard Learning System is a virtual learning environment and course management system. Its main purposes are to add online elements to courses traditionally delivered face-to-face and to develop completely online courses with few or no face-to-face meetings. Powerpoint, Kaltura, video, audio, animation, and other content are created outside of Blackboard and added into Blackboard courses for students to enhance teaching and learning efforts.
