Distance Learning

Blackboard is a course management system that makes the creation, organization, and management of course content on the web relatively simple. Blackboard can be accessed through a web browser from any computer with Internet access. Faculty and students will have access to Blackboard courses on a nearly continuous basis.

The principle features of Blackboard include a standardized course template, tools for uploading course content – including multimedia files, course discussion boards (threaded discussions), collaboration tools (chat rooms), e-mail, file sharing, gradebook, test and surveys, class rosters, course copy, and an interactive assignment tool.

Below are a few quick references links to help you get started on your online journey using Blackboard. If the answers to your questions cannot be found within the links listed, please visit the IMT help desk located on the 2nd floor of the Lehman Bldg.
