Blackboard is web courseware which can be used to create online content and add online interaction and collaboration to a course. Faculty can use Blackboard to post course documents, create links, hold online discussions, give tests, and facilitate groupwork. Students can use Blackboard to find course information, turn in assignments, view grades, and interact online with faculty and other students.
