Blackboard Course Management

What is Blackboard?

Blackboard is a course management system that allows your instructor or professor to creating an e-learning environment. It gives you on-line access, 24/7 to syllabi, readings, assignments, exams and other materials your professor has posted. Blackboard also offers the ability for both you, your classmates and, your instructor to exchange electronic files, communicate, and have an online discussion. To take advantage of these features you must enroll in a Blackboard component (if your instructor has made one available) of the course in which you are registered.

Registering for a Course vs. Enrolling in a Blackboard Component

All courses must be added or dropped through the REGISTRAR during the college's designated drop/add period for you to receive official credit for your course work. Your ability to access a Blackboard course component means only that you have enrolled in that component. Enrolling or unenrolling from a Blackboard component has no affect on your official class schedule or the amount of tuition your are billed.
