Blackboard is the college’s course management software. Faculty routinely use Blackboard (Bb) to provide course materials for students to access anytime via the web, provide interactive study guides, develop discussion boards, implement online quizzes, send e-mail to students in courses, among others uses.

Our Blackboard suite allows for other uses including instructional support for faculty, a syllabus builder, discussions boards for campus groups, departments and offices, virtual classroom/ collaboration tools, assessments and surveys, among other online tools.
