The Blackboard Learning System helps professors and students enhance the classroom experience by enabling continued class collaboration, facilitating feedback from peers and instructors, and allowing for unlimited access to course documents, reading assignments, and other supplementary materials.

Blackboard is a powerful learning environment that accommodates the needs of students and professors alike by supporting a wide variety of electronic media, including: PowerPoint handouts, Microsoft Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, Video and audio clips in my popular formats, PDF files, and more.

Respondus Lockdown Browser

Respondus is a tool for creating and managing exams that can be printed to paper or published directly to Blackboard.
Respondus locks down the testing environment within Blackboard. When an assessment is started, students are locked into it and are unable to print, copy, go to another URL or access other applications until they submit their exam for grading.

Important Note:

If a pop-up window appears and asks you to update Respondus Lockdown Browser to its latest version, follow the prompts on the screen to complete the update. If you have trouble opening/using the software please ensure you are using the latest version.

Creating an Electronic Portfolio

Electronic portfolios are a way for students and/or faculty to showcase their work and experience for educational and career pursuits.
