Blackboard is a web-based Course Management System that provides instructors with an easy way to present online course elements.
Instructors and students can access materials at any time from any computer with an Internet connection. The best Internet browser to use with Blackboard is Mozilla Firefox. If you are currently using Explorer or Netscape, you can download Mozilla Firefox for free.
Blackboard is an important tool to many of us at SAU. We can share best practices and techniques that will benefit the classroom.
A new version of a course website is created each time a new course is offered and all students are enrolled. Blackboard enables educators to enhance in-class instruction by providing 24/7 access to course materials along with a variety of tools that can assist faculty with the management of their courses. Blackboard also enables faculty to engage students online through the use of a discussion board.
