Blackboard Version 9

Blackboard is a course management system used to extend the learning environment outside the classroom. Blackboard has many features that facilitate teaching, learning and interaction including providing: 

  • course content (files, graphics, audio and video)

  • enhanced communication (announcements, email, discussion board, desktop web conferencing)

  • assignment management

  • tests and surveys

  • plagiarism detection

  • blogs, wikis and journals

  • online grading tools

The Upgrade from 9.1 SP5 to SP8 (May 2012), provides additional features such as:

  • more streamlined interface

  • interactive rubrics (see the tutorials for additional info)

  • updated version of Collaborate (formerly Elluminate, see the tutorials for additional info)

  • testing enhancements (auto-save, auto-submit, re-grading, negative marking)

TurnItIn is now integrated into Blackboard:
