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 applications are created outside of Blackboard and added into Blackboard courses for students to enhance teaching and learning efforts.
Standard Operating Procedures
ITS has prepared a Standard Operating Procedures document for Blackboard. The purpose of this document is to define the manner in which Blackboard is to be used by students, faculty, and staff, and the method of support provided by Information Technology Services (ITS) and the Office of Academic Technologies.
